Just a little more than a week away…
DRIBS AND DRABS
The bulk of materials required in advance of the 2014 Synod Assembly are compiled! Agenda, summary of Roberts Rules of Order, a report from the Bishop, proposed Mission Spending Plan, proposed Resolutions, biographical information on candidates for elected synod leadership and so forth can be downloaded INDIVIDUALLY or in BULK. See Materials page.
Wireless access is available in the Plenary Hall of Lord of Life Lutheran Church. However, seating is chair rows only – no tables. Plan accordingly.
If additional materials are added to our collection after today, they will be posted and identified separately on the Materials page.

“We are especially eager for conversation with Voting Members and others who want to talk about the proposed changes to the synod by-laws or about the synod Mission Spending Plan. And we plan to talk about other things, too, with anyone who calls in,” says Bishop Graham.
