The purpose of PAUMCS is to provide a supportive base for the unity and fellowship of its members in order to provide individual growth, professional development, continuous education and spiritual enrichment. PAUMCS:

promotes and encourages the training and support of United Methodist Church secretaries;

serves as an advocate for emerging concerns that affect church secretaries;

encourages and assists in the establishment of chapters of church secretaries, within or across jurisdictional and annual conference boundaries, and assists in coordinating the program and work of these chapters.

Virginia PAUMCS:

The Virginia Chapter of PAUMCS was established March 1999 at the Virginia United Methodist Conference Center in Blackstone. Since that time the membership of the Virginia chapter has grown to as many as 90 members and an all-time high of 130 attendees at a fall event at the Virginia United Methodist Conference Center. The chapter sponsors two meetings each year: normally, a one-day fall training event and a two-day spring spiritual growth retreat.

The fall 2017 Experience Your Connection event brought David Dommisse, conference treasurer and business administrator, to explain the statistical data required for year-end  tables.  So  much great information was shared in this training that we wanted to make it available to you.
