Electing a new President of the House of Deputies

Electing a new President of the House of Deputies

President of the House of Deputies Bonnie Anderson updates information on elections in the House of Deputies – note change of date and times of schedule for election:

June 8, 2012

Dear Deputies and First Alternates,


In consultation with the Secretary of the House of Deputies, The Rev. Dr. Gregory Straub, nominations for the President of the House of Deputies will be open in the House of Deputies on the 5th legislative day, July 9 rather than on July 8 as previously announced in my memo of 5/24/12.

On July 9 from 6:30 – 8:30 pm The House of Deputies will host a “meet the nominees” gathering. The time from 6:30-8:30pm on the draft schedule is an optimum time to hold such a gathering and will enable deputies, alternates and interested visitors to attend without competing with other evening events already on the schedule.

Therefore, I will request the House of Deputies Committee on Dispatch of Business to present the following schedule for special orders of business:

On the 5th legislative day, July 9, nominations from the floor for the office of President of the House of Deputies will be open.

On July 9 from 6:30-8:30 pm the House of Deputies will hold a “meet the nominees” gathering – location to be announced.

On the 6th legislative day, July 10, the House of Deputies will elect the 32nd President of the House of Deputies.

On the 6th legislative day, July 10, nominations from the floor for the office of Vice President of the House of Deputies will be open. The Vice President shall be of a different order than the President-elect.

On the 7th legislative day, July 11, the House of Deputies will elect the Vice President of the House of Deputies.

The President-elect and Vice President-elect will take office at the adjournment of the regular meeting of the House of Deputies at which they are elected and shall continue in office until the adjournment of the following regular meeting of the General Convention. The President and Vice President are eligible to stand for election for three terms in each office.

As General Convention nears, I encourage you to check in on the Deputy Online Forum and participate as you wish. If you have not joined the forum, please contact hod@episcopalchurch.org for assistance. I will be sending you messages via email as Convention nears as well. I look forward to seeing you in Indianapolis!

Peace and Blessings,

Bonnie Anderson, D. D.

President, The House of Deputies

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.
