Toward Columbus: 2006 Convention to elect many leaders for Episcopal Church

4/18/2006
[Episcopal News Service]  In addition to electing a Presiding Bishop and the president and vice president of the House of Deputies, the 75th General Convention will also elect a secretary and treasurer of Convention and members of other church-related boards.

The Rev. Dr. Gregory Straub will stand for election as the convention's secretary. He is the Convention's executive officer and at the 2003 Convention he served as the assistant secretary for voting in the House of Deputies.

N. Kurt Barnes, the Episcopal Church's treasurer and chief financial officers, will run for election as Convention treasurer.

The House of Deputies elects both positions and then the House of Bishops is asked to consent.

Also up for election will be:

  • trustees of the Church Pension Fund,
  • Executive Council members for the class of 2012,
  • members of the General Board of Examining Chaplains, and
  • trustees of the General Theological Seminary.

Profiles of all those nominated for these offices can be found beginning on page 8 of the Blue Book. This section is also available online at www.episcopalarchives.org/e-archives/bluebook/6.html.
