The Greening of Triennial Convention

Our time together in Salt Lake City, Utah in July, 2015 will NOT ‘be business as usual’.  The Episcopal Church is dedicated to reducing its carbon footprint, while using innovative software and technology to streamline its legislative work and to improve on its efficiencies.

Let us at NAGA also think along those lines. How can we as altar guild members reduce our carbon footprint? This question will be the subject of a recently-announced NAGA workshop at General Convention. So please join us in Salt Lake City, June 27-July 2, 2015.

Recommend leaders for NAGA’s next triennium

The New Year arrives, the months advance and suddenly you begin to recognize the early signs of another season making its entrance. Change is in the air. The time has come for NAGA members to submit nominations for NAGA officers and nominating committee chair to serve during the 2015-2018 triennium.


It’s time to renew your membership

As we move into the new year, it is time to renew membership. Download the NAGA Membership Form to renew your membership in our vital ministry. Dues remain the same. Our thanks to those of you who have already paid! You are a fine example to the rest of us. Keep up the good work.


Help send someone to General Convention

Help defray the cost of NAGA’s vital programs at our triennial meeting — and assist those from disadvantaged populations who might otherwise be unable to attend. Please consider making a donation to the NAGA Endowment Fund. What better way to honor those who have gone before us, or those with whom we serve at the Lord’s Altar?
