The Ohio Chapter of PAUMCS (Professional Administrators of the United Methodist Connectional Structure) was a dream of Bob Storey, Coordinator of Communications for the West Ohio Annual Conference. In 1988 the General Conference approved legislation allowing the General Council on Finance and Administration (GCFA) to sponsor PAUMCS. But Ohio PAUMCS did not become a reality until 1991 when it was established at a gathering at the Green Street United Methodist Church, Piqua, Ohio in October of 1991. Celebrating over 28 years of service, Ohio PAUMCS is committed to its purpose of recognizing the position of the church administrator as a professional within the church. By providing leadership and educational opportunities around Ohio, the Ohio PAUMCS chapter is linking secretaries, administrative assistants and volunteer staff as an effective support group in local ministry. Individual membership is $25.00 and a staff membership is $40.00. Applications are due by February 15, 2020 to Lorri Phile, 53 Towne Commons Way, Apt. 13, Cincinnati, OH 45215-6139. If you have any questions, please email Lorri at office [at] cliftonumc.com. Click here to apply.
