Pre-Assembly Conference Meetings

In preparation for the assembly we wanted to make sure you knew about the Pre-Assembly Conference meetings. Each conference, by constitution, is obligated to provide a meeting before each Synod Assembly. A synod staff member attends the meeting and this year we will also have a member of the Transition Team in attendance. There are six conferences in the Metro D.C. Synod. If you are unable to attend your conference meeting the deans have agreed to open meetings to anyone who would like to attend to make sure everyone is prepared for this year’s assembly especially what the bishop election process will look like. If you attend a conference meeting that you are not a member of there may be issues that you would not be able to vote on, but you would receive a lot of the same information. All voting members should plan on attending one of the following meetings:
