What Does the Union Conference Treasurer Really Do?

The treasurer is the chief financial officer of the North Pacific Union Conference (NPUC). As such, the treasurer works with the other officers (president and executive secretary) to accomplish the mission of the church. It is the duty of the treasurer to make sure that the financial policies are in harmony with the actions of the North American Division (NAD) and the NPUC Executive Committee and to supply monthly financial statements to the executive committee.

The treasurer also chairs or is a member of many official committees of the church dealing with finance, financial policies and institutional boards. Human resource issues including personnel records, payroll and health benefits are other treasury responsibilities. The union treasurer also acts as a counselor to local conference treasurers, Walla Walla College and academy treasurers.

Another task is to share with NAD administration financial policy requests from the conferences and then to explain the details of the newly voted NAD policy changes to the appropriate organizations.
