Virtual Assembly FAQs for Voting Members

What do voting members need to participate in the 2021 SOS Assembly?

1. Attendance Device: A computer or tablet with a microphone--This can be a shared device

2. Voting Device: A separate smartphone or tablet to download & use our voting app--This device can be used by one person only

3. Good internet connection


Can voting members gather in one location?

YES! As long as all voting members can gather safely based on current ODH guidelines, and they have access to a shared Attendance Device, we encourage voting members to attend assembly together. Perhaps even more than one congregation could gather if space allows.

We're looking for congregations that can

  • Project a Zoom meeting from a computer to a larger screen
  • Capture sound and video from participants in an “all congregation” meeting
  • Provide a moderator for an online event

If you can do the above and are willing to open your doors on June 4 & 5 for assembly voting members, please email Susan Barton-Nonno at We'll call you and go over the details!
