Earlier this year the Professional Association of United Methodist Church Secretaries (PAUMCS) voted to change the name of and adopt a new logo for the organization. Now the organization is known as the Professional Administrators of the United Methodist Connectional Structure. The acronym, PAUMCS, remains the same.
The annual meeting exposed attendees to speakers on diversity in ministry, radical hospitality, and office ergonomics. Attendees participated in a mission-outreach event with Justice for Our Neighbors (JFON), a faith-driven ministry welcoming immigrants into churches and communities.
The membership elected a new slate of officers that includes our own Rome-Carrollton District Administrative Assistant Josie Hickom asTreasurer and LaGrange District Administrative Assistant Denise Wilson as Membership Secretary.
The Georgia PAUMCS meeting is coming soon with a registration deadline of Sept. 5. The event with a theme of "A Jouney to Higher Learning" will be held in LaGrange September 21-24.
All United Methodist Church secretaries and administrative assistants in our conference are invited and encouraged to attend.
