The Pre-convention Meeting and Nominee Forum for the 147th Annual Convention is scheduled for Wednesday, November 3, 2021 at 6:30 p.m. on Zoom.
Since time during the business session of convention is limited, the pre-convention meeting is essentially the only opportunity to debate and to ask questions about proposed resolutions or the budget. All delegates and voting clergy are expected to attend.
The Nominee Forum is a chance for nominees to let the electors know why they are passionate about seeking their particular offices and to help electors make informed choices. It is a time for the candidates for offices to introduce themselves and let people know a little bit more about them than what is in their limited bio from the nomination form.
Invitations to the Zoom meeting will be sent out the week of Oct. 25 to all certified lay delegates, canonically resident clergy, those nominated to leadership roles, sponsors of resolutions and other lay leaders. Credentials for voting in a practice election will be sent by a separate email.
