81st General Convention Deputies

The General Convention is the governing body of The Episcopal Church. Every three years it meets as a bicameral legislature that includes the House of Deputies and the House of Bishops, composed of deputies and bishops from each diocese. The General Convention also includes Interim Bodies which meet between the triennial sessions to accomplish ongoing work and tasks set in the triennial sessions. The last session of the General Convention was in Baltimore in 2022 (delayed one year due to the COVID pandemic). The next one will be in 2024 in Lexington, Kentucky.
