As Fall begins so does Annual Congregational Meeting season. We have received several requests in the synod office for information on how to hold meetings remotely.
In June, we held a Leadership Academy session titled Council 103: Congregational Constitutions and Council Member Responsibilities with the Synod Legal Counsel and Synod Secretary where details on how to hold meetings remotely was explained.
Below are the resources from that meeting:
- Leadership Academy- Council Leadership 103: Congregational Constitutions and Council Member Responsibilities Webinar Video – Remote Meetings Discussion at 40:20
- Leadership Academy- Council Leadership 103: Congregational Constitutions and Council Member Responsibilities Power Point – See pages 19-26
- Considerations for Remote Council and Congregational Meetings from the ELCA
- Remote Meetings Letter for Metro D.C. Synod from Synod Legal Counsel – Provides specific information for DC, Maryland, and Virginia jurisdictions.
For more information on other Leadership Academy offerings and resources that have been provided throughout the COVID pandemic check out our COVID Resources page. The Google Drive Folder has everything we have gathered and shared starting in March 2020 and includes all of the zoom webinar offerings for the past 7 months. We will continue to add to this drive as information becomes available.
