This form is for EDWM parishes registering their entire delegation for the 143rd diocesan convention in Kalamazoo. Please only register the delegates/alternates/clergy who plan to attend the convention. Registration is $100 per clergy/delegate/alternate. This form is ideally completed by a parish administrator or someone in charge of the congregation's business and purchases.
If your parish has any changes since you submitted your Election Report earlier this year following your annual meeting, you will need to submit a Change of Delegate form, mailed or faxed to the diocesan office. The diocesan fax number is (269) 381-7067.
Elected lay delegates, alternates and clergy representing your parish can all be registered on this form. Alternates are optional. Clergy consists of Episcopal priests and deacons who are canonically resident in the Diocese of Western Michigan.
The cost of hotel lodging is not included, but a block of rooms is being reserved at a special rate at the convention location, Radisson Plaza Hotel at Kalamazoo Center. To make reservations, call 269.343.3333 and mention the EDWM Convention Nov. 3-4. Online booking is not available.
Things you need to know about your delegates' needs before registering:
Is a vegetarian meal needed?
Does the delegate need childcare? (Childcare will be provided nearby, and all children are welcome regardless of age).
Please e-mail the Convention Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions.
