Regarding the election of the President and Vice President of the House of Deputies

Dear Friends:

I will serve as the President of the House of Deputies until the adjournment of this 77th General Convention on July 12.

The office of Vice President of the House of Deputies is now vacant. At the organizing session of the House of Deputies on July 5, the House will elect a Vice President to serve at this Convention. Deputy Scott Kirby, Diocese of Eau Claire, has agreed to be nominated to serve as Vice President. Other persons may also be nominated from the floor. If Deputy Kirby is elected, he has indicated that he will not stand for election for any office for the next triennium.

The House will elect a President and Vice President to serve beginning July 12 after the adjournment of this 77th General Convention. Canon I.1.1(b)

To facilitate these elections, I will request Dispatch of Business present the following schedule for special orders of business:

• On the 4th legislative day, July 8, nominations from the floor for the office of President of the House of Deputies will be open.

• On the 5th legislative day, July 9, 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.

Peace,

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.
