A term of convenience used to described the committees, commissions, boards, and agencies of the General Convention. It is not a canonically defined term. If a group was created by General Convention resolution, or if a group is constituted by Canon, Rule of Order, or Joint Rule, or if it is funded within the canonical section of the budget, then it is an Interim Body. The interim period is the time between General Conventions. The Interim Bodies of the General Convention were first listed in The Episcopal Church Annual 1997.
