The Minnesota Chapter of the Professional Administrators of the United Methodist Connectional Structure (PAUMCS) offers opportunities for fellowship, support, continuing education, professional development, and spiritual growth to administrative workers within the Minnesota Annual Conference. Whether your title is secretary, administrative assistant, or office manager, and whether you are a volunteer or paid staff, PAUMCS celebrates your contribution to the vitality of churches, districts, and the annual conference.

Minnesota PAUMCS offers inspiration, continuing education, and fellowship at its annual meeting in the fall. A spring retreat is designed to renew spirits. Regular PAUMCS newsletters are sources of information. Additionally, membership in PAUMCS provides a professional connection, supportive network, and event discounts.

Upcoming Events

Thank you to all who joined us for our virtual gathering Being Vital  on October 26, 2020. We hope it was a fruitful experience for you. We especially thank all who shared ideas for self-care during these challenging times and helpful insights and information to help us in our ministry to the United Methodist Church and communities. 

Your MNC-PAUMCS Executive Committee is considering additional opportunities to provide virtual training and information sessions. We will update you as plans are firmed up. 

The National PAUMCS 2020 Annual Conference which was scheduled for April was postponed due to COVID-19. We have heard that all is in place for the 2021 Conference to be in Kansas City, Missouri (date to be determined). They are planning all the same events as were planned for the 2020 National Conference. We will share updated information as it is received. 

Your MNC-PAUMCS Retreat Committee is planning a virtual retreat centered on the theme of Feeding Your Spirit for April 2021. The date will be set once the date of the 2021 National Conference is set.
