In advance of the convention, it is expected that every clergy and lay deputy attend a Pre-convention Information Session. These sessions are open to all interested Episcopalians. For your convenience, three sessions will be offered. In advance, we thank our host congregations for their hospitality.

The purpose of the information sessions is to prepare for Diocesan Convention, both as to substance of matters to come before convention and for preliminary discussion and understanding. All deputies should bring the preconvention materials to the meeting. These materials will be available to download prior to the meetings from the website at http://www.episcopalpgh.org/2013-diocesan-convention/.

Be reminded that in order for lay deputies to be seated at convention, each parish needs to have filed a parochial report for 2012, completed a parish audit for 2012, and be current in their assessment payments to the diocese.
