2020 CTA Board Member Elections
Posted on 2020-03-09T18:09:32.013Z
Since our formation nearly seven years ago, the Christian Transhumanist Association has been working hard to advance the conversation between Christianity and the leading edges of technological thought.
From our first major action funding the Embrace Infant Warmer project—uniting our values of technology, compassion, and respect for human life—to authoring the historic Christian Transhumanist Affirmation in conjunction with academics, clergy, and technologists—we've helped set the tone for a positive engagement between religion and the deepest and most challenging issues of our time.
We've carried this message across the country, from secular transhumanist conferences in California, to Redeemer Presbyterian in NYC—and around the world, from Lagos, Nigeria to Vina Del Mar, Chile. We've appeared in major publications, like Wired, Christianity Today, and the BBC, and our members have been interviewed for numerous podcasts, articles, videos, and even The Daily Show.
In 2018 and 2019, we took a massive leap, organizing an incredible series of Christian Transhumanist Conferences, and drawing people from around the world. We heard from leading thinkers in technology and religion, discussed big, exciting ideas, and most of all—formed deep relationships with many people working for positive change, just like you.
These have been fantastic experiences, and we're excited to keep moving forward.
We're just getting started. We've got big plans for the year ahead, and we need hard-working, insightful leaders to help bring those plans to fruition.
Robert Walden Kurtz and Emily Hogan Redding have just completed three fantastic years of service in CTA leadership. Which means that this month, we're electing new members to the Board of the Christian Transhumanist Association.
Who will those people be?
That's up to you. Nominations are now open. We're looking for the people who can help lead these important efforts into the future. Maybe that's someone you know. Maybe it's you.
After we finish collecting nominations, our voting members will elect the new board.
If you're not a voting member of the association, this is a great time to become one. You'll not only help advance this incredibly important conversation, you'll have a direct voice in who will lead it over the next three years.

I believe this conversation is one of the most important efforts of our time, and I've dedicated myself completely to it. I'd love for you to join us.
