Dates for pre-convention deanery meetings have been set. These are the meetings at which delegates to convention and others who are interested review the proposed diocesan budget, any proposed resolutions, and nominations for election at convention. They also must elect a dean (1 year) and a sub-dean (1 year). Deaneries also will elect a lay and/or clergy representative to executive council (3 years). The results of those elections should be sent to Eleanor Doty at the diocesan office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Diocesan Convention is November 8-9, 2013, at the Multi-Purpose Events Center (MPEC), 1000 5th Street, Wichita Falls, 76301. This will be the 31st diocesan convention and the third held in Wichita Falls. Previous conventions were there in 1985 and 1998. Co-chairs of the convention planning committee are Marie Libby of St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church and J.D. Todd of All Saints’ Episcopal Church in Wichita Falls. The committee has met monthly since December 2012.
