The year that is covered by reported data on the form. Included dates should span January 1‐December 31 of the year being recorded. Data included should cover all those serving at the synod level during those dates. Entities/bodies requiring representational reporting of their membership is the case for all those bodies that the synod nominating committee selects a slate. GACOR will only accept reports for years completed. The form has been changed to reflect these realities. No longer left blank, the form specifies 2009 because In October 2010 we will accept reports for data covering 2009. We will follow this pattern in subsequent years.
