The Conference Treasurer’s Office is launching a blog for 2013 to help highlight priority issues for local church treasurers and finance committees. I (Christine Dodson, conference treasurer) will be the primary author but will share the blog with others from time to time to highlight our shared areas of ministry. The goals are to bring you timely posts to help you in your ministry responsibilities and to provide a forum for you to participate and share your ideas as well. I plan to post to this blog twice each month. If you have ideas to share, please reply with comments for blog entries or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your blog post requests. Thanks and I look forward to sharing this part of our ministry with you!
