New COR logo
June 29, 2012
The logo dates to the early 1980s when the Committee focused on racial and ethnic diversity. While still concerned with these communities and issues, the mandate has expanded to include other marginalized groups, most recently including persons with disabilities in 1992.
After the 2011 Constitutional changes, the GACOR created a new visual expression of the group to assist with communications. GACOR sought a logo that could be used by other CORs as well. Expressing the theme of unity through diversity, the logo consists of multi-colored and multi-shaped pieces forming a cross.
The General Assembly Committee on Representation (GACOR) is a permanent committee of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). Sixteen persons serve, elected by the assembly and drawn from ruling and teaching elders from across the country. The Book of Order (G-3.0103; F-1.0403) describes its purposes and principles. The committee advises the General Assembly and its subordinate bodies, on representation, issues of concern including policies and procedures that affect participation and matters related to the employment of personnel. In addition, it advocates for diversity in leadership at the assembly level.
The new GACOR logo is available for use by other councils’ committees on representation by request. Please contact the Manager for Representation.
