In March 2022, Pacifica Synod’s Executive Assistant for Accounting, Terri Robertson, hosted two online workshops to assist congregations in understanding the steps to conduct an annual Financial Review of their financial records and processes. This annual review assists the congregational council in fulfilling its general oversight of the congregation’s accounting, financial reporting and internal control systems.
Below you will find the recordings of each of the workshops, along with the presentation slides and resources shared with participants.
