The AGA will be held in English at the Merigar West Gonpa, and live streamed on Practicing Together for those who are not eligible to formally vote or who cannot join their local IDC Community seats.

The AGA voting will be organized by the local Gars and Lings that are aligned with the IDC. In order to vote, please contact your local Gakyil and check if it is organized to participate in the AGA.
