The General Convention is the governing body of The Episcopal Church (TEC) that meets every three years. The Convention is a bicameral body which includes the House of Deputies and the House of Bishops. The work at Convention is carried out by deputies and bishops representing each diocese. During its triennial meeting deputies and bishops consider a wide range of important matters facing the Church.
The 78th General Convention of the Episcopal Church was held June 25 – July 3, 2015 at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City. The deputies to this convention were elected by the 174th diocesan convention in November 2013. The 79th General Convention will be held in Austin, Texas, in 2018.
The Executive Offices of the General Convention support the work of the Committees, Commissions, Agencies and Boards of General Convention (CCABs) that meet during the triennium and also facilitate the planning and operation of each General Convention.
