FPN is seeking a new Treasurer! With Marta Reese’s upcoming retirement, we are searching for a church member who can assume the Treasurer position beginning July 1 for a proposed 3-year term (certainly renewable, with no term limits imposed). The Treasurer will need to be comfortable with numbers and accounting principles, as well as supervising our Assistant Treasurer and working with our internal auditor. A stipend for the Treasurer position is in place. To view the job description, please see the job responsibilities posted outside the Parish Hall or click here. Do you know of a church member candidate for Treasurer? Are you interested yourself? If so, please contact our Chair of the Nominating Committee, Bob Neely.
