Diocesan Convention

The Basics

Diocesan Convention

November 30 - December 1, 2018

The Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles holds an annual convention where clergy and lay delegates from all the churches in the Diocese come together to make decisions. These decisions cover budgetary concerns, governing issues, and resolutions regarding current events or church-related issues. Decisions are made by vote after discussion and debate. 


The Place

Ontario Convention Center

A contemporary, state of the art venue with more than 225,000 square feet of flexible column-free exhibit, meeting and function space, the Ontario Convention Center is ideal for the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles' Convention. Located at 2000 East Convention Center Way with access to a variety of hotel and dining options within walking distance, the center has been utilized by the Diocese for a number of years.
