2019 Convention Deadlines

Monday, July 22nd, 2019

The Bishop sent out an email a few weeks ago regarding the theme for the 2019 Diocesan Convention. You can read that here. Below is a list of deadlines and reminders.  If you have questions, please contact us. 

 

  • 8/1, list of open positions made public
  • 8/5, deadline for resolutions that propose a change to the Canons or Constitution (send to contact@diopa.org)
  • 9/3, deadline for all other resolutions (send to contact@diopa.org)
  • 9/15, all news on Convention needed for Caminos
  • 9/15, registration for Convention begins
  • 10/2, deadline for nominee submission to Nominating Committee (bios and photos to be provided by nominees)
  • 10/15, Convention agenda and documents made available.
  • 10/17, deadline to register for Convention

 

Per the earlier communication, and according to our canons, the following items are due from each parish vestry no later than the opening of Convention if they have not already been submitted: 
* The Annual Parochial Report for the Calendar year 2018
* An audit of parish finances for the Calendar year 2018
* Your commitment of Sacred Gifts (formerly "canonical" assessment and a voluntary pledge) 

If your vestry is unable to submit these items prior to Convention, a written explanation is requested so that the Convention may have a greater understanding for its consideration regarding seat, voice and vote for the parish delegation to Convention.
