The Executive Council of the Episcopal Church meets today through March 4, in Portland, Oregon. You can find a roster of the Council here.
Are the Council meetings open? I just wonder if the general public, or even better, the blogging public will be able to watch and report for us.

Over at The Anglican Centrist, FatherJones says it is "an arrogant claim" to argue that the primates don't understand our polity.
He goes on to assert that the Communique addresses its requests to the bishops because the HoB is "the part of the Episcopal Church's governance that can make decisions in between General Convention meetings."
I guess the primates aren't the only ones who don't understand our polity. The Anglican Centrist doesn't invite comments, but if someone knows his email address maybe they could alert him to the existence of the Executive Council (whom I wish well in their deliberations).

Scott, the Executive Council by-laws say that "meetings are generally open to the public," although provisions are made for closed executive sessions and private conversations under certain circumstances. I can only assume that ENS and the other usual observers will be on hand.
