Accept Manual of Business Methods in Church Affairs
Resolved, That the Executive Council accepts the updated chapters of the Manual of Business Methods in Church Affairs, subject to formatting, editing and pagination changes to be made by the Treasurer.
The Manual is an online resource that provides guidance for the increasingly complex work of all treasurers and parish administrators. It is referenced in Title I, Canon 7, “Of Business Methods in Church Affairs,” and Resolution D-147 (1979 GC): “Accounting Principles and Practices for Dioceses, Parishes, and Other Congregations”.
Individual chapters have been updated periodically. All chapters were read and edited in 2019 with the assistance of external experts and past and present members of Executive Council.
The current Treasurer believes approval by EC would be appropriate since it is cited in the Canons.
