Business Matters

Excerpted from the Lammas 2020 issue of Glad Tidings:

“Among the matters to be discussed and voted upon are the election of a new Convention President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Chancellor. The second reading shall be given to the Preface to the Constitution of the UECNA which was given its first reading and approved at the 2017 General Convention. The text of this is to be found on the UECNA website

“Also slated to be discussed is a revision to the Canons.”

The document below includes the proposed changes with explanatory notes.

    Ordo Calendars for 2021 will be available at General Convention for $5 each. Please buy them while you are here so the UEC does not have to pay the mailing costs. The calendars are the same format as 2020.

    UECNA tri-fold information brochures have been updated and will be sold at General Convention at cost. 50 for $7, 100 for $14, etc. There is a space on the back for a stamp or label with your parish contact information. The price will be higher for brochures sent through the mail, so get them now.
