2017 Convention

The 2017 annual convention was held on October 27-28 at the Hilton Vancouver, Washington.

The Diocese of Olympia Convention meets annually to conduct the business of the diocese. It elects to diocesan offices; ratifies a budget; sets assessment levels; admits congregations as missions or parishes; votes on resolutions; elects a General Convention deputation; and hears the bishop’s annual address. Clergy and elected delegates from congregations attend. Convention information is distributed via newsletter and this webpage.

 

Save the Date: The 2018 Annual Convention will be held October 26-27, 2018, at the Double Tree by Hilton Seattle Airport
