About Diocesan Convention
The annual convention of the Episcopal Diocese of East Tennessee is the legislative body for the Diocese. Each year, parishes across East Tennessee send delegations to convention to consider resolutions, elect diocesan leadership, hear reports from diocesan committees and other working groups, pass the annual diocesan budget, and find inspiration and training from an array of in-person and online affinity groups and workshops.
This year, we will also elect leadership for the General Convention of The Episcopal Church for General Convention #81 in 2024 in Louisville, KY.
The convention, meeting in early February of each year, rotates between each of our three regions: the South East region (Chattanooga), the Middle East region (Knoxville, and the Upper East region (Kingsport/Johnson City).
Convention has also included some form of activity for youth and young adults.
