More feedback is being sought about what the name should be for the new conference being formed by the Connecticut, Massachusetts and Rhode Island conferences.
The conference, which General Synod is being asked to approve in June, is provisionally being called the Together As One Conference.
A task team from the Together As One
Board of Directors has been working on a process for naming the new conference. That process will be discussed by the full board this weekend.
In the meantime, the task team is asking people to choose their top three choices from the names that have been suggested thus far, and asking for short explanations about their choices. Those filling out the survey may also make new suggestions.
