Guide to the New Assessment Canon
The Guide to the new Assessment Canon, which made its debut at this year's Winter Convocation, has recently been updated, based on suggestions and practical experience.
It contains information on reporting under the new canon, definitions, canons, forms and sample charts of account. The new canon is effective January 1, 2010.
The Guide can be accessed using the link below.
Change in Assessment Canon
At its 194th Convention (2009), the Diocese passed a new assessment canon. The canon was the culmination of over three years’ work done by members of the Assessment Review and Finance Committees. Bishop Hollingsworth initiated a study of our assessment canon and those of other dioceses back in 2007, after witnessing proposals to change the canon at several Diocesan conventions. The canon which was replaced had been in effect since 1998.
