2018 Convention & Gathering

November 9-11, 2018
Crowne Plaza Phoenix Airport
4300 East Washington St, Phoenix AZ 85034

The women of our Grand Canyon Synod will meet in convention on Friday afternoon, November 9, 2018.  Following our convention (business) meeting, we’ll kick off a Gathering event on Friday evening, continuing on Saturday, and ending with worship on Sunday morning.  Details of our Gathering event are being planned.  Check back often for updates as they become available.

Each congregational unit in our synod is eligible to send one (1) voting member to the convention (business meeting) portion of our event.  We are planning to begin our convention after lunch on Friday and will conclude by 5 pm.

Registration forms are not yet available.

Officer and Board Elections:  A Call for Nominations is extended for those women who are interested in serving on our synod women’s board as an officer or a board member.  We will elect all four officers (president, vice-president, secretary and treasurer) as well as eight board members.  Some of our existing officers and board members can be re-elected for a second term.  You can download the nomination form from this link:  2018 GCWELCA Nomination Info and form

2020 Triennial Voting Member Elections:  Nominations are also being sought for women who would like to serve as voting members to the 11th Triennial Convention of Women of the ELCA, to be held in Phoenix on July 14-16, 2020.  Because we only meet in convention every two years, we need to elect our Triennial Voting Members at our November 2018 meeting.  You can download the nomination form from this link:  2020 Triennial Voting Member Nomination
