Participate In PLC Preparing for General Convention Webinar Series
The Provincial Leadership Conference (PLC) is sponsoring a series of monthly webinars for deputies and bishops who will be voting on resolutions at General Convention. Presenters will offer their perspectives on some of the issues coming before General Convention.
The PLC chose to focus the webinars on the pillars of the Presiding Bishop's vision of Beloved Community - reconciliation, evangelism, and environment - as well as resolutions around structure and canon changes. Individuals who have worked on some of the submitted resolutions throughout this triennium and others knowledgeable in the focus field have been enlisted as panelists for the webinars.
The webinars will be on the second Thursday of the month. They will be live beginning at 7:30-9:00pm ET. Panelists will present their thoughts about the resolutions /issues followed by questions and answers.
Please save the dates and join us for these upcoming conversations:
