Parish chairs or secretaries must complete this form to nominate their General Synod delegate/s
Each LCA parish is entitled to elect lay delegates according to confirmed membership:
If an elected delegate is unable to attend, the parish may elect an alternate. A delegate must have been elected before any alternate can be appointed. Elected delegates serve for the synodical period. The parish is required to notify the LCA of its delegate and alternate. Details will need to be added to LAMP2* using the above form by 31 March 2021.
Each LCA district is entitled to elect one pastor delegate for every two eligible lay delegates, based on the 2019 statistical returns. The district offices are required to provide the names of their pastor delegates to the LCA for entry into LAMP2* by 31 March 2021. In addition, the emeriti are entitled to elect three pastors from their group. A postal ballot to determine the delegates will be held in November 2020.
The principals of each region of Lutheran Education Australia (LEA) are entitled to elect one secondary and one primary school principal per region as delegates. LEA is required to provide the details of these delegates to the LCA for entry into LAMP2* by 15 December 2020.
LAMP2* For assistance with this requirement, please contact Jayne Welke at the LCANZ Churchwide Office (firstname.lastname@example.org) or your district office.
Delegates should note that they will need to use their LCA email address (not their private email address) to access and participate in the online sessions, including voting. Delegates who do not know how to access their LCA email inbox should urgently contact LCA IT Services for assistance at email@example.com or on 08 8267 7380.
The parish fee will be approximately $640 per lay delegate. This fee covers administration and running costs. There is no fee for pastor delegates. The registration fee is payable even if a delegate does not attend. The parish will be invoiced half the fee in each of December 2020 and February 2021. Other Convention costs, such as meals and transport, will be advised by 31 March 2021. The costs for visitors to attend Convention will also be advised by 31 March 2021. Registration to attend must be submitted through this website between 30 June and 31 August 2021.
We are grateful for the support of the LLL, the major sponsor of Convention of General Synod.
