|GZA 2010 delegate slate for the 36th World Zionist Congress|
Due to the financial recession, the U.S. Area Election Committee of the Central Elections Committee of the World Zionist Organization canceled public elections in the United States for the 36th World Zionist Congress. Consequently, the Green Zionist Alliance only has a list of its delegates to the 2010 Congress instead of a slate of delegate candidates as it would have in normal election years.
