2021 Annual Conference September 24th through September 26th

One week prior to the Conference, those registered will receive an email containing the zoom link for each event. You are free to attend those events that you wish to with ample break time between them.

On Sunday the 26th, we are all invited to tune in to the live broadcast of the worship from St. Mark’s Cathedral where vergers who are in the Seattle area are invited to vest and join the procession.

We hope to see you at the conference!!

You might be asking how do I attend the conference events? It starts by registering for the conference.

We had all hoped to meet in person in Seattle for our annual conference this year. The surge in Covid-19 pandemic and the Delta variant validates our decision to have a virtual conference instead. Your conference committee has been hard at work putting together our 2021 virtual conference. As you can see by the agenda below, they have complied an awesome event over 3 days to include worship, socializing, keynote address, education, business meeting and more!
