Why Do We Pledge? (Treasurer)
Why do we pledge? Do we have to have a budget? An Audit? How is our money spent? How do I get a gift in memory card? How are the funds for Call to Parer & Self-denial used? Is there a way that I can give to UMW after I am gone? Now, just what is the Legacy Fund? I am a new Unit/District Treasurer- What do I do now? How do we send funds for a special project? What reports do I need to send in and to who? These are all questions that you would ask the Treasurer of our Conference. Come to our session and you will either get answers or find out where to go to get the answers. Hopefully, you will learn some new things!
