2022 Annual Conference

This information is for the 2022 New England Annual Conference hybrid session and 2022 Clergy Session.

Those attending in person and online will use the same electronic system to vote and to get recognized. The following information will help you understand the processes. 

Equipment

There are no voting machines. You will need to have your own smart phone, tablet and/or computer to participate.

If you do not have a device, indicate that on your AC registration and we will assist you. If you have completed registration but find you need assistance getting equipment, contact Annual Conference Registrar Joy Mueller at joyemueller@comcast.com

Voter ID

Each voting member will have a unique voter ID. GNTV will send this information directly to registered voting members (you must register by May 18 to get voting credentials). Voter IDs are expected to be emailed on or around June 1, 2022.

Training

Annual Conference members are invited to an online training session with GNTV to learn/review how to use the "get recognized" and voting features for the upcoming Annual Conference session.

A live online training will be held at 6 pm on Thursday, June 2, 2022. 

Members attending online and in person will use the same system to be recognized on the floor (make an amendment or a motion, raise a point of order, ask a question, etc.) and to cast their votes. This training will be recorded.

Watch this site and our e news for registration details.

Balloting Procedures: Annual Conference Nominations for Episcopal Elections

Conference Nominations for Episcopal Elections (which occurs at Jurisdictional Conference) will happen following the opportunity for the conference members to make additional nominations from the floor with no speeches permitted. 

We will use an Australian ballot listing the names of the nominees from the Pre-Conference Materials (presented as an addendum in 2022) in alphabetical order with additional lines to write in names of individuals nominated from the floor. 

The ballot will include an option for selecting “none.” Each member shall vote for no more than three candidates listed on the ballot.

The Annual Conference will nominate up to three candidates ranked in the order of the highest, second highest and third highest number of votes cast for the three persons.

In order to be endorsed by the Annual Conference, each candidate must receive 50% plus 1 of the members present and voting.

There shall be only one vote.  Of the candidates receiving 50% plus 1 of the votes cast, the 3 receiving the greatest number of votes shall be nominated to the Jurisdictional Conference.

In the event none of the candidates receive 50% plus 1 of the votes of the members present and voting there will be no nomination made to the Jurisdictional Conference.
