How do I get something on the agenda?

Contact the Administrative Assistant to the Secretary of Synod (905-527-1316, ext.380). The agenda is set by the Coordinating Team approximately ten days prior to a Council meeting. It meets between the meetings of Synod Council, at the call of the chair, to plan agendas for Council meetings (dates below)
