Amendments and motions from the floor must be presented at a microphone by a regular delegate, and presented in written form to the clerk of the General Synod, Tom De Vries. To expedite the process of presenting the written motion, these may be emailed to, making sure to include your name and classis in the email. Please remember that emailed motions will only be considered at the time they are introduced from the floor.
