Our Diocesan ECW sponsors an annual CONFERENCE to facilitate fun/fellowship and a business meeting to elect/install the Diocesan Board.  Each Parish should send two voting delegates to the business meeting.  Information and registration forms are available from your Convocation Coordinator.  Our Conference is open to all people of the Diocese and it is a good time to catch up on what other Parishes are accomplishing.  Clergy are encouraged to attend.
