The 80th General Convention of The Episcopal Church
July 8 – 11, 2022. Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, Maryland
The General Convention is the governing body of The Episcopal Church. Every three years it meets as a bicameral legislature that includes the House of Deputies and the House of Bishops, composed of deputies and bishops from each diocese. The General Convention also includes interim bodies which meet between the triennial sessions to accomplish ongoing work and tasks set in the triennial sessions.
Originally scheduled for July of 2021, the 80th General Convention was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
