What’s covered in a regional meeting?

Regional meetings prepare delegates and congregations for Convention. Everyone in the diocese is encouraged to attend a meeting.

  • Budget hearing: At each meeting, Diocesan Board members will present the proposed 2019 diocesan budget and answer questions.
  • Resolutions: Resolutions that are in the proper order and have been received by the October 2nd deadline will be available as handouts but will not be discussed at regional meetings. A resolution hearing will take place after dinner at Convention on Friday, November 9th.
  • Bishop Duncan-Probe will host a Q&A at each regional meeting.

There are three opportunities to attend a regional meeting in person, and one opportunity to attend by video-conference. Please see dates and details below.


Orientation to Convention

Convention Secretary the Rev. John Martinichio will present an orientation session for first-time delegates or anyone curious about the procedures of Convention. This orientation will be offered as part of the virtual regional meeting conducted by video-conference on Tuesday, October 16th at 6:30 p.m.

The orientation will be recorded and posted for on-demand viewing at cnyepiscopal.org/convention.
