When electing their deputations for the 2011 diocesan convention, our congregations will be choosing deputies to participate not only in the annual meeting but also the election of a new bishop. Every congregation should be aware of the important additional role the 2011 convention deputies will play, and each electing body should make sure that all who are elected deputies understand the additional work they will need to do. These duties will include attending one of the “walkabouts,” the question and answer sessions with the nominees that will precede the electing convention. The deputies will also be required to attend both conventions–the annual diocesan convention and the electing convention. The annual diocesan convention will be held Feb. 17-18, 2012 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Lexington, Kentucky. The electing convention is scheduled for August 18, 2012.
The Rev. Robert L. Sessum
President, Standing Committee
