Please join us for a cup of coffee and conversation that will help define your role as church treasurer and answer all those questions you might have. Church treasurers and assistant treasurers are all welcome.

The program will run from 9:30 to noon, with an optional additional session until 1:30 for new treasurers (please bring a lunch if you plan to stay). Rev. Dr. Jonathan New, Associate Conference Minister for Stewardship and Finance, will facilitate.

Topics will include:
  • Resources for treasurers
  • Exploring the roles and responsibilities of a church treasurer
  • Understanding your church as a 501c3 corporation
  • Tax and legal issues including:
    contributions and fundraising
    staff compensation
    types of funds
    reporting compliance and exemptions
  • Rethinking the budget process
  • Managing legal and financial risks
Please note that basic bookkeeping practices will not be covered during these gatherings.
