NAES at General Convention 2012

The 77th General Convention of the Episcopal Church takes place July 5–12, 2012 in Indianapolis, Indiana. Like other Episcopal organizations, the National Association of Episcopal Schools (NAES) will be exhibiting this triennial meeting that establishes policy and direction for the Church. NAES staff and Governing Board members will be sharing the good news of Episcopal schools and monitoring and talking with bishops and deputies about legislation affecting our schools.
