CCAB Nominiations for the next triennium now open

CCAB Nominiations for the next triennium now open

“CCAB” is General Convention-speak for “Committees Commissions and Boards”. Nominations are now open for places on these during the period between General Conventions. Nominations are also being accepted for committees of Executive Council.


The General Convention Office of the Episcopal Church is now accepting nominations for clergy and lay volunteers to serve on committees and commissions of the General Convention and committees of the Executive Council.

The 77th General Convention 2012 will be held July 5 – 12 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Ind. in the Diocese of Indianapolis.

All members of the Episcopal Church may serve on committees of the Executive Council and standing commissions of the General Convention. Membership on joint standing committees of the General Convention is limited to deputies of the 77th General Convention.

The work of these bodies is guided by resolutions passed by the General Convention, called the Acts of Convention, as well as resolutions passed at meetings of the Executive Council, held three times a year.

Appointments will be made after General Convention by the president of the House of Deputies, who will be elected at the July meeting. The term of appointment will depend on the committee or commission and whether or not an appointment is for a full term or partially-filled term, until the close of General Convention in 2015 or 2018.

Deadline for nominations is August 1. Nominations may be submitted for oneself or for someone else who has agreed to be nominated. Nominations will only be accepted online.

To apply, people must submit the nomination form available in English here and in Spanish here.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
