Diocesan Convention Goes Virtual with Series of Weekly Roll-Out Meetings


Published in the issue.

This year’s 244th Diocesan Convention, which was scheduled to take place at the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine on Saturday November 7, will—of course—now take place online, in this case via Zoom. The convention has, in fact, already successfully begun, with a series of one-hour Wednesday “Roll-Out” meetings featuring prayer, song and presentations by Diocesan ministries, followed by question and answer sessions for which questions are submitted by meeting attendees via the chat feature of the Zoom platform. These meetings, which are close captioned and have an ASL interpreter on-screen, are also being used by convention secretary, the Rev. Matthew Heyd, to provide instruction for online voting, which will be carried out via a special app, and to test different voting approaches well in advance of November 7, when voting for diocesan offices and on resolutions will actually takes place. Details of the meetings, which are open to all, may be found on the home page of the diocesan website. The link for joining via Zoom is dioceseny.zoom.us/j/91561537149. Recording and Spanish transcripts are at dioceseny.org/2020-roll-out-recordings/.
