Registration for 2021 VIRTUAL Annual Council

Only voting lay and clergy delegates should register. There is no need for lay alternates, non-canonically resident clergy, spouses, or visitors to register. This year’s Annual Council is virtual. Login information and voting credentials will be emailed directly to registered delegates the week before the event.

Registration for Council closes on January 31 has been extended to February 5, 2021.

A church must have submitted its 2019 Parochial Report and a current Certificate of Lay Delegates and Alternates for its lay delegates to be eligible to vote at Council. Submission of your Certificate of Lay Delegates & Alternates does not register your delegates to attend.

Registration Fee

The registration fee covers the expense to convene Council. 

  • The registration fee for canonically resident parochial clergy delegates and for lay delegates is $25. This includes members of the Standing Committee and Executive Board.
  • The registration fee for canonically resident non-parochial clergy delegates is $10. This includes retired clergy and clergy not currently serving a church.

Registration Instructions

Each delegate must register individually and provide their unique email address. You may pay by credit card or check. Scholarship funds for Council registration are available. Contact Susan Allen at sallen@diosova.org or 757-213-3391.

  • Credit card payments are processed through PayPal. You do NOT need a PayPal account to make a credit card payment.
  • Please make checks payable to Episcopal Diocese of Southern Virginia with “2021 Annual Council” on the memo line. Checks should be mailed to: Episcopal Diocese of Southern Virginia, 11827 Canon Blvd. Ste. #101, Newport News, VA  23606-3071
