The Information Technology and Communications Offices will be working in the coming weeks to migrate all of our Clergy e-mail accounts to our new Google Apps system. When this project is complete all of our Clergy (Retired and Active) and Conference Staff will be able to interact and collaborate on the same Google Apps system. We will all be able to take advantage of the Gmail web interface for e-mail, Google Calendar and Google Docs & Spreadsheets. In short, if you have an nccumc.org account you will be able to participate in this online collaboration. This new system provides a large range of features that will help our Clergy better communicate with each other, with members of their congregation and with the Conference Staff. We are very excited to begin offering this technology soon.
Please note the following migration timeline:
- The IT Office will work directly with a small pilot group (10-20) in the next two weeks to begin their migration.
- Depending on the success of the pilot group the next group (approx. 100) will be migrated in Mid February.
- The remaining e-mail accounts will be migrated in early March.
If you have a Clergy e-mail account hosted on our old server you will be contacted via e-mail when we are ready to migrate your account. The Conference Staff will be happy to address any migration issues we encounter during the process. We look forward to working with you during this exciting time of transition. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
