The deadline established by bylaw for the submission of reports and overtures to the 2019 convention of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod is 20 weeks prior to the opening date of the convention, which is March 2, 2019.
Boards and commissions of the Synod are asked to submit their reports to the convention no later than Feb. 6, 2019, to facilitate their inclusion in the Convention Workbook. Because of printing timetable requirements, the same early deadline, Feb. 6, is also recommended for the submission of overtures. While all overtures submitted by the official March 2 deadline will be forwarded to floor committees of the convention, overtures that are submitted by the earlier date are more certain to be printed in the Convention Workbook.
