Registration will open July 15.
*Every Member of the Clergy who is canonically resident in the Diocese and who is ecclesiastically employed or appointed by the Bishop to ecclesiastical service in the Diocese or resident within it shall have a seat and vote in the Convention. A Member of the Clergy, licensed by the Bishop, who has charge of a Parish or Mission in the Diocese when Convention convenes shall also be entitled to a seat and vote. (Constitution Article 4, Sec. 4.)

- Canonically resident clergy who are employed in, or appointed by the bishop to, ecclesiastical service within the diocese
- Canonically resident clergy residing within the diocese (including retired clergy)
- Clergy licensed by the bishop to be in charge of a parish or mission of the diocese without regard to their canonical or actual residence
