Organization structure of CRCNA SPACT Report agenda 2014

There is a lengthy and thorough report of this committee. At the end of the agenda item there is a request for input which I assume to be for synod delegates to complete. I wonder if those of us in the pew can participate in this? Do we need a new post for this? It is a complicated report yet of great importance to the CRCNA. Harry Boessenkool
