by Theresa McDonald Lee of Camp Kintail, PCCCA Board President
Over the last six months, your board has been working diligently behind the scenes. The board retreat was held at Hopewell Camp and Conference Center in Oxford, Mississippi. Two conference calls have also occurred. One of the strategic directions of the board over the last two years has been to ensure that our by-laws, policies, and procedures are up to date. At the last Annual Conference, the association adopted revised by-laws. The board has now completed a financial policy and is currently working on gifting, personnel, and privacy policies. We have also updated the job description of our Executive Director, Joel Winchip. We regularly hear updates from Joel about the work of the association and from Scott Henderson, the PCCCA Board Treasurer, on the financial picture. We will meet three times before the Annual Conference, twice by conference call and once in person. The board is always open to ideas, feedback, and thoughts on the future of the PCCCA.
The board has regretfully accepted Becky Little’s resignation from the board. We all appreciate the commitment and joy she brought to the board. In particular, Becky spent a lot of time working on updating the association’s by-laws.
In order to meet the on-going needs of the board, Bri Payne from John Knox Center (Ten Mile, TN) has agreed to a one-year appointment on the board, relating specifically to fund development. We are glad to have Bri’s wisdom and experience on the board.
