Dear all

Thanks for your positive responses to this. 

It looks as though none of the dates I suggested will work, mainly because of a clash with the LGCM conference and the PCN conference.   Saturday morning looks like the best time to have such a meeting.  But everyone seems to agree that we should get together to plan the campaign effectively.  

How about Saturday 27th April at 11.00, here at St John's Waterloo?  Can enough make that so we have a quorum? Or failing that, Saturday 11th May at 11.00 (avoiding the bank holiday weekend).

Dear everyone,  

Further to the discussion at the Partnership Day, IC's board have now agreed to that IC is very happy to coordinate the campaign for the General Synod elections 2015, as requested by partners present.  Good news, and we're getting on with it.  

Modern Church and Jean Mayland and Leslie Crawley, all of whom were very involved in the No Anglican Covenant campaign, have agreed to come on board. Thank you!

I understand that WATCH may be doing their own thing alongside us all, but we will all stay in close contact with each other.

Therefore, 2 things.

One is to encourage you to ensure that your membership is aware RIGHT NOW of the importance of the Electoral Roll revision which is taking place as we speak. The electoral roll elects the PCC and Deanery Synod Reps, and of course Deanery Synod reps elect the House of Laity. So it's vital to have the right people on.  Here are two leaflets for immediate circulation to your membership/mailing list, if that's helpful to you -

<Electoral Roll Pamphlet Feb 2013 (WATCH (London)).doc>

Secondly I'd like to invite you to a meeting, here at St John's Waterloo,  to agree roles and responsibilities for the wider campaign, both in terms of Deanery Synod and General Synod.  If your organisation doesn't wish to be part of this, let me know and I'll take you off the circulation list.  But if you'd like to be involved, could you let me know your availability for the following dates?

Tuesday 16th April at 11 a.m
Wednesday 17th April at 11 a.m.
Thursday 18th April at 2 pm
Saturday 20th April at 11 a.m.

I think we don't need more than one delegate per organisation unless you'd like to send more...

Here's a Road Map towards the 2015 elections, too.
