Official Notice: Nominations – 2007 Synod Convention

The following report of the Committee for Convention Nominations provides nominees for many of the officer, board, and commission positions to be filled by the 2007 convention of the Synod.  District membership or origin is also provided.  The elections will take place during the July 14-19 convention in Houston, Texas.

The Committee for Convention Nominations expresses its appreciation to all who submitted names and all who allowed their names to be considered for nomination.  In some cases, the committee was unable to provide two candidates for each position to be filled (Bylaw 3.12.3.6 [a]) due to a shortage of nominees for those positions from the nominations process.
