  Special Synod Registration Q&A

What will I need to join the Special Synod Meeting?

1. A computer with access to the internet.

2. Audio – you can either use a headset plugged into your computer OR you can call in to the meeting with your phone.

You will always need the computer in front of you so you can see what is going on in the meeting and have access to voting. Please note that each synod member must have a separate computer. ie Two synod members cannot participate in synod by using the same computer.
