General Convention

Quick note as I’m finishing up packing up my “office” for the trip to Anaheim.

It turns out that pretty much all the big publications that deputies will need access to on the floor can be downloaded to be stored on a computer. The Blue Book and the Bishop’s and Deputies Handbooks are online from the General Convention website. The Report of the Church Pension Group, with the additional information about the proposed resolutions to this coming Convention are found on the website here.

Don’t forget to grab a copy of the proposed budget here.

And the latest version of the draft schedule appears to be posted here.

PRO TIP: Check out Evernote if you have a blackberry or an iPhone as well as a laptop. You can store any or all of these documents on your laptop and have them synced to your PDA. Very useful to be able to add notes and have the full document available to you no matter where you are. I’ve been using Evernote for a few months now and I’ve found it invaluable when I’m traveling.
