Bishop and Deputy Handbook now available For Episcopal Church General Convention

[February 21, 2012] The Bishop and Deputy Handbook, an important reference for understanding and navigating the Episcopal Church General Convention, has been revised for 2012 and is now available to download at no cost at or here
“The Bishop and Deputy Handbook is a reference of the General Convention for elected deputies as well as for the bishops of the Episcopal Church, and is designed to help clarify details about the way General Convention works,” explained the Rev. Gregory Straub, Executive Officer and Secretary of the General Convention. “The Handbook is vital for its preparatory information for General Convention 2012, and can be retrieved on the newly-redesigned General Convention website.”
Available in English and Spanish, the Bishop and Deputy Handbook is 22 pages and includes an outline of the legislative process, a listing of the chairs of the Legislative Committees, and a draft schedule for General Convention 2012.
General Convention 2012 will be held July 5 through July 12 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, IN.
The Episcopal Church’s General Convention is held every three years, and is the bicameral governing body of the Church. It is comprised of the House of Bishops, with upwards of 200 active and retired bishops; and the House of Deputies, with clergy and lay representatives elected from the 110 dioceses of the Church, at over 700 members.
