Resolved, the House of _______ concurring, That Canon I.1.14 (c) of the Canons is hereby amended to read as follows:
(c) From the sites approved by the General Convention, the Joint Committee, with the advice and consent of a majority vote of the following: The Presidents and the Vice-Presidents of both Houses of Convention,
the Presidents of the Provinces and the Executive Council, shall determine the site for such General Convention and proceed to make all reasonable and necessary arrangements and commitments for that meeting of the General Convention. The site and date thus selected shall be deemed to have been appointed by the General Convention, as provided in the Constitution.
The Task Force on Provinces is recommending that provinces focus on the mission of the Church and remove themselves from all the canonical responsibilities that may be necessary for the organization but that don’t apply to furthering the mission of the Church. The task of approving the site of General Convention does not seem to relate to the mission of the Church.
