Lay members, chosen at annual parish meetings, including the wardens and convention delegates, also vote. Alternates and two (2) youth between the ages of 13 and 19 are also chosen by parishes to participate at Convention.

The proportion of Convention Delegate representation, per Canon V.3c, shall be one (1) member for each fifty (50) confirmed adult communicants in good standing or major fraction thereof; provided that no parish shall be represented by less than one (1) nor more than (10) elected delegates
