By Joshua Cheney | Secretary of Convention
First Call to Convention
This is the first call to all delegates, alternates, and other members of the Diocesan family to the Annual Convention of The Episcopal Church in Vermont. This year’s Convention is a one-day event, which will include worship and our business meeting. The convention will be held at the Hilton Hotel in Burlington, Vermont on Saturday, October 26.
This announcement contains important information concerning the Convention and the business to be undertaken. There will be a substantial amount of information that will be sent directly to delegates and alternates, by email, in a rather short period of time. (Delegates and alternates, please keep in mind that though there will be a large volume of information sent to you, it is important information for you to familiarize yourself with as a delegate or alternate.)
