2020 Call for Feedback on Proposed Canonical Amendments
It’s that time of year. The Governance Task Force, the group tasked with drafting constitutional and canonical changes suggested by various provincial groups and members, is calling for feedback on this year’s proposed changes to the Provincial Canons.
There are no proposed constitutional amendments.
This year’s amendments range from simple word changes for clarity to the addition or deletion of entire sections. You, as a member of the Anglican Church in North America, are invited to participate in the amendment process by submitting your comments to the Governance Task Force by April 10, 2020.
To do so, review the video report from the Governance Task Force below and the written report here, then follow the comment submission directions in the video.
