Integrity Needs Volunteers for General Convention!

Integrity USA plans for historic changes to take place in the Episcopal Church this summer.
Can you help?

The General Convention of The Episcopal Church will convene in Indianapolis this summer from July 2 through July 12. Since 1976, Integrity has made a very significant witness and presence.  Claiming the Promise: Making All Mean ALL is our campaign theme and our marching orders for GC12. Integrity has spearheaded the charge for almost every LGBT-positive resolution coming out of Convention for the last 35 years and we will continue that charge this summer.

 All of Integrity's preparation leading up to and during General Convention is geared toward a single goal — to accomplish positive changes in the church, in the world and in the Anglican Communion. We would not have had the successes we celebrate today if we had not worked very hard to partner with all the other peace and justice groups in the church. At General Convention, we join with them to support a broad platform of issues.
We hope to draw a team of faithful, concerned, committed Episcopalians and loyal, dedicated Integrity members who recognize the importance of a collaborative effort. Integrity’s success at General Convention will depend on  it. 

We are looking for a diverse group of talented individuals. Integrity will pay for lodging for supported volunteers (double occupancy), a stipend provided toward travel expenses, as well as some food allowance. Make no mistake about it, there will be long hours, sore feet and lots of meetings. This is not a 9 to 5 gig! But, volunteers will find the work to be very gratifying, exciting, and uplifting.  You will be making a difference for the future.

If you are interested in applying to be a member of Integrity’s Volunteer Team, click here to fill out an application.  It asks about your interests, experience and skills. It lists the specific jobs we need to fill and the skills and requirements needed to fill them. It will take about 15 minutes. The deadline for applying is March 30, 2012.  Those who will be chosen as the volunteer team will be notified by April 30, 2012.

Important note: the number of persons who will make up the Volunteer Team depends almost entirely on the amount of money that Integrity raises during our Claiming the Promise GC12 campaign. If you can't come to GC12 but would like help, please consider contributing to our Claiming the Promise Campaign, donate here.

Thank you in advance for your interest in working with Integrity USA.  If you have any questions, please contact: Chris Mackey-Mason at
