2020 Synod Assembly
Acting on a recommendation from the Bishop, with the concurrence of the Synod Assembly Planning Committee, our Synod Council has cancelled the 32nd Annual Synod Assembly. Registrations will be refunded. The election of a Synod Secretary will be filled with a one-year interim appointment, and a regular election held in 2021. The Synod Council will consider the FY2021 Budget and the FY2020 Audit. The ratification of Synod Council Team Leaders will come before the 33rd Synod Assembly in 2021. Members whose terms are expiring on the Consultation and Discipline Committees will have those terms extended by one year. Resolutions and Memorials may be submitted by April 30, 2020; the Synod Council will schedule a meeting to consider those Resolutions and Memorials. We will experience about $10,000 of non-refundable expenses as a result of the cancellation, but the Synod Council agreed it was the right move to protect the health of our synod’s rostered and lay leaders. If you have any questions, please contact Cindy VanVliet, Associate for Community.
