Welcome to the East Tennessee General Convention updates page. Here you will find information on news, upcoming meetings, and posts from our deputies. The 80th General Convention of The Episcopal Church is exploring new ways in holding pre-convention meetings to allow for greater feedback and participation whilst maintaining the integrity of their meetings. We are continually monitoring updates from General Convention publications. You can sign-up for the House of Deputies email list here (scroll to bottom of page).
Meetings Open to the Public
Those legislative meetings that are open to the public require registration 2-business days prior to the meeting date. To give General Convention staff adequate time, we suggest surveying the upcoming meetings and scheduling your attendance four days in advance.
You can view the schedule of meetings here. It is suggested that you keep this tab open for reference later in the process. Look for meetings marked with “Video-Open Hearing.”
Click here to open the registration form page. You will want to select your preferred language. You will then refer to the schedule of meetings from the first page above and apply the information for the meeting you wish to attend, noting your information, then the meeting information, then whether you are observing or testifying. Those who are observing are required to keep their microphones and cameras off during the meeting.
After you register, a General Convention staff officer will process your request and email your meeting credentials and further instructions.
