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.

Safeguarding Your Church Resources

At our Annual Meeting in October we recorded the key sessions and are able to share them with you.

  • Physical Safety, with Chris Carr, offers information and suggestions for securing your space and planning ahead for emergency situations.
  • Cyber Safety, with Brent Morris, looks at how internet crimes happen and what you can do to prevent (or at least prepare for) them.
  • Procedural Safety, with members of the Conference Finance and Administration group, talks about best practices and procedures for financial matters, sharing space and workers’ compensation.
