The ECD is excited to announce that the 75th Convention is happening virtually this year. The Diocese of Olympia are offering technical support to make this convention happen.
August 10 - 13, 2021. Starting at 12pm Eastern Time.
The ECD Convention will be livestreamed for non-registered viewers (no voting rights).
Caption and voice interpreters will be offered.
If you registered as a delegate (voting rights) let us know if you did not get an unique Webinar link - firstname.lastname@example.org.
Unfortunately, it came to our attention that YouTube isn't Deaf Friendly. as it only shows whoever is talking (the interpreters), but not the signers.
The Diocese of Olympia will upload the video from Zoom and it will be posted here as soon it's available. We are truly sorry this happen.
