This year LCAQD Synod will be using Vero Voting.
On the Saturday and Sunday mornings of Convention, each registered Synod delegate will receive a text message and an email with a unique voting link for each day. This link will be the avenue to participate in the voting during the sessions.
If any technical voting issues are experienced during the Convention, there will be volunteers in the main auditorium that can assist.
We ask that all Synod delegates bring charging devices to Convention each day. Charging stations will be available to use in the main auditorium.

Since our last LCAQD Convention of Synod, your leaders have been continuing work on the Governance Change Project with the goal of further enhancing the governance model across our district.
