Convention

151st Diocesan Convention
Friday and Saturday, November 10-11, 2017
Melville Marriott Long Island, Melville, NY map-small-bl.png

The annual diocesan convention is the ultimate organizational decision-making body comprised of clergy and lay members. Convention meets annually for two days in November.

Each year, representatives from around our diocese gather to review and discuss issues, policies and structures. Convention delegates decide the diocesan budget (based on recommendations from Diocesan Council), elect members of the diocese’s various administrative, executive and judicial bodies and vote on any resolutions—including those that amend or add to the Constitution or Canons—that may be brought before it. When necessary, they elect the Bishop, Assisting Bishop or Coadjutor and Bishop(s) Suffragan.

Only Canonically-Resident Clergy and Parish or Mission Delegates have vote but all are welcome to attend Convention as guests.

Registration is required. Registration will open August 1, 2017.
