This is a long-overdue introduction of myself as the “new” St. Andrew Treasurer. I assumed the position from Andy Resor in July, and with Andy’s valued assistance I’ve been coming up to speed – one month-end at a time. When I took the position, I knew there would be occasions when I would be away from home, so I’ve explored ways to perform the job remotely, and have largely succeeded. In support of that goal, there are two ways the congregation can help:
Electronic Payment Vouchers: If you have a reimbursable expense, it can be submitted to me using an e-mailed copy of the Payment Voucher form, following the “Guidelines” on the form. Use of e-mail will allow me to receive the voucher wherever I am. I can then initiate payment using our bank’s electronic Bill Pay system, which delivers a mailed check in 3-4 days. An electronic copy of the Payment Voucher is located in the “Donations – Electronic” section of the church website. Receipt of a voucher from a member’s e-mail address will satisfy the form’s requirement for a signature, and expense receipts will be requested after the fact, if needed. My e-mail address is: RogerAPaulsen@cs.com.
