About General Convention 2015
The 78th General Convention will be held at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, Utah.
At this upcoming General Convention, we will be as paperless as possible: laptops, tablets, and other mobile devices will be the primary media of legislative materials.
Read the press release from the Office of Public Affairs about this new initiative.
New Deputy Selections
If your diocese is selecting deputies, information on those deputations, and forms needed for Secretaries of Diocesan Conventions, are available on the Deputations webpage.
