General Synod 2007

Media facilities at General Synod

June 18 - 25, The Marlborough Hotel, Winnipeg, Ont.

News media representatives will be required to register at the reception desk in the lobby of the hotel and to obtain and wear a name badge in order to gain access to the plenary hall and to the newsroom. Space in both the plenary hall and the newsroom is limited; accredited journalists are therefore advised to arrive well in advance of the day’s business they wish to cover. Because of space limitations please do not rely on the newsroom to provide computer equipment and telephones. Wireless internet is available at this hotel.

The newsroom is Meeting Room B – 8th Floor. The room is on the same floor as the plenary hall. A sound and a video monitor will be available in the newsroom. It is imperative that journalists provide their own equipment and supplies. This media kit is being distributed to registered news media representatives in advance of General Synod. Reference copies of the Convening Circulars (agendas and supporting documents) will be made available in the newsroom. In addition there will be a limited number of audio and video feeds from the floor of the plenary hall. (Specifications are available on request.)

The following are General Synod contacts who will be available in the newsroom:

Telephone numbers for the newsroom and cell phone numbers for the people listed above will be made available on-site.
