Dear Sisters in Christ,
 
You are invited to attend the Thirty-Second Annual Convention of the Southeastern Synod Women of
The ELCA which will be held September 20-22, 2019 at Music Road Resort in Pigeon Forge, TN. 
 
You will find the following information concerning the convention 
on our website at www.seswelca.com.
  • Registration Form
  • Convention Poster
  • Reservation Information for Music Road Resort
  • Voting Member Responsibilities
  • Nomination Form
Please encourage the women in your unit to attend the convention and extend a personal invitation to the young women (ages 14-40).  You may make as many copies as you need of the Registration Form and the Convention Poster to share with the women in your congregational unit. 
 
We have five $100 scholarships available and two $100 scholarships for young women (14-40).  Scholarships are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. The deadline to apply is July 1, 2019. Please contact Patti Austin at paustin562@att.net  for a scholarship application. 
 
Please note that you will need to make your room reservations directly with the Music Road Resort at 855-790-4646.  Rooms will be released starting July 1 and cannot be guaranteed after August 1. A breakfast buffet is included with room reservation.  All other meals will be in the convention center.
 
Also attached is the information for your voting member to the convention.  Each congregational or special unit of the Southeastern Synod Women of the ELCA is entitled to one voting member.  It is very important that all congregations be represented as we conduct the business of our organization.
 
We will be electing a vice-president, secretary, and three board members this year.  A form is attached to submit nominations for these positions.  Please prayerfully consider serving our organization in this capacity but remember that only one person from a congregation may serve on the board at a time.
 
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me or any of the board members.
 
I look forward to seeing you in September!
 
Embracing God’s Grace,

Patti Austin
