General Synod Local Hosting Committee

The Local Arrangements Committee’s (LAC) task is to provide local assistance to the National UCC’s General Synod organizing team. There are several areas of responsibility that fall to the Conference for hosting General Synod.  These are listed below. The remainder of the immense task of planning and implementing a multi-day, national event are handled by UCC national staff.

  • Volunteers
  • Meeting Operations
  • Hospitality
  • Worship
  • Mission Outreach
  • Local Event (Wisconsin Street Festival Celebration) 

The LAC co-chairs, who are responsible for overall coordination of the Wisconsin effort for hosting Synod, include:  Debbie Payden, Tom Payden, Bonnie Andrews and Tim Perkins

Here are the people who have agreed to serve as Team Leaders for the many areas of responsibility. We thank all of these people for their willingness to serve in this ministry!
