General Synod registration, including hotels and optional dining events, is now open for visitors, host Conference volunteers, exhibitors, staff and delegates. 

Delegate Registration

If you are an Ohio Conference delegate, please do not register yourself for Synod.  Your Synod registration will be handled and paid by the Ohio Conference. 

Delegation Hotel Reservations

The Conference delegation (delegates and staff) has a block of rooms reserved at the Cleveland Marriott Downtown at Key Center.  Delegates and Association staff will be contacted by Conference staff regarding their hotel needs, and reservations will be made through the Conference.  Delegates and staff will need to make payment arrangements with the hotel at check-in.




The Ohio Conference will host General Synod 30 in Cleveland, June 26 - 30, 2015. Lots of volunteers will be needed to handle a wide variety of jobs, before and during Synod.  Our Local Arrangements Coordinators, Sue and Derry Wimer, are working with national staff members to finalize volunteer job descriptions and prepare an online volunteer sign-up form.  Read the latest news from the Wimers below.

General Synod 2015 Local Arrangements Coordinator Report

General Synod Local Arrangements Coordinators (LAC), Sue and Derry Wimer, have been meeting with the national staff General Synod Coordinators as they begin planning for GS15.  At this time, the Coordinators are preparing volunteer information and will have specifics after the Synod 15 Planning Meeting, which takes place in March at the UCC National Offices.

After the Synod 15 Planning Meeting in March, Sue and Derry Wimer will activate an on-line Volunteer Sign-up Form and Synod 15 Registration Form.  A link will be posted on the Ohio Conference website, which will outline specific details of each volunteer opportunity.  Individuals wishing to volunteer will also need to register for General Synod. 

After each Synod, the LAC reviews and updates all volunteer opportunities, especially since new technology makes procedures more efficient and less time consuming.  Keeping that in mind, many of the traditional volunteer duties have changed over the years.  If you have volunteered at past General Synods and look forward to helping in 2015, please be sure to read over the updated Volunteer Descriptions so you have knowledge of any changes made to that volunteer position.

All volunteer positions will be described in detail on the Volunteer Sign-Up Form.

If you have any questions, please contact Sue and Derry Wimer at shwimer1@gmail.com or at 440-655-3732.
