Many around the Synod are gathering for circuit forums and making nominations for various offices (Deadline is October 20). It is important that these individuals receive as many nominations from congregations as possible.
We want to make sure that you are aware that The United List has updated its site and has released its suggestions for President, Vice President, Secretary, Vice Presidents 2-5 (now regionally elected), and regional lay members for the Board or Directors.
We should also note that they have developed a web form so that you can let them know who you have nominated for other offices (including an at large lay member of the BOD) so that they can consider such information as they prepare the entire list as the Convention draws closer.
You can also subscribe to their e-mail list so you are sure to receive the most up-to-date information.
BJS will have more information on nominations and other issues as we get closer to the 2013 convention, July 20th, in St Louis.
