Article XI -
Remove Diocesan Council
Secretary of the Convention
October 25th, 2021
Passed by Convention via the Consent Calendar on Saturday, October 23rd, 2021.
PASSED FIRST READING AT THE 171ST CONVENTION ON OCTOBER 17th, 2020.
This amendment will need to be passed by the 172nd Convention to come into effect.
The Special Convention of 2008 amended the Constitution and Canons to replace the former Diocesan Council (formally known as Bishop and Council of the Diocese) with the new Executive Council of the Diocese. Apparently, Article XI of the Constitution was overlooked at that time. This proposed amendment simply corrects that oversight without making any substantive change in practice.
Having passed the 171st Convention, this amendment will need to be passed by this convention to become effective.
