William and George are brothers, and Albert is William’s son-in-law. The family contains a mix of both synod experience and fresh blood.

William served as president of Synod 2009 and has attended 14 synods, seven as a delegate and seven as a committee representative. He is the chairman of the Ecumenical and Interfaith Relations Committee (EIRC).

George, of Classis Alberta South/Saskatchewan, has attended three synods, and Albert, of Classis Lake Superior, is attending his first synod this year. At 28, he is also the youngest delegate at synod.
