2018 Convocation & Synod
DIOCESAN COUNCIL NOMINATIONS AND ELECTIONS
Three members of the Diocesan Council will be rotating off at synod. Specifically, Rev. Jan Buchanan (clergy representative from the Northeast Region), Matt Haggerty (lay representative from the Mid-Atlantic Region), and Glenn Wise (lay representative from the Southeast Region). These three specific roles, from their respective regions, will need to be filled by election at synod. Please note: the above mentioned people may be re-elected according to our Canons. Please send your nominations to the Diocesan Secretary (email@example.com).
The deadline for receiving nominations is August 1, 2018. For further details on the nomination and election process, please see Title I, Canon 3, Section 2 of our Canons.
CHURCH DELEGATIONS TO SYNOD
As a reminder, all clergy of our Diocese are required to attend Synod, as are the lay delegates elected by each church. In addition, in accordance with our Canons, we require a report from each congregation and mission, listing their delegation.
