Basic Training for NEW Clerks of Session

Rev. Dr. Michael Wilson, Sated Clerk

“Initial Clerk Training” This is for elders who are assuming clerk duties for the first time, elders who are "coming back to clerking" after a time away, and anyone who wants a refresher on the duties of a Clerk.  Led by Rev. Dr. Michael Wilson (Stated Clerk), we'll go over the core roles of being a clerk and the resources available to clerks.


Training for EXPERIENCED Clerks of Session

Rev. Sarah Kneier & Elder Dianne Yuninger

“Ongoing Clerk Conversations” This is an opportunity to elders who have been clerks to explore topics of interest to clerks -- including questions about minutes, rolls, and registers, electronic meetings -- designed in collaboration with those who will attend.  Led by Rev. Sarah Kneier (Assistant Stated Clerk) and Ruling Elder Dianne Yuninger (Recording Clerk), we'll delve deeper into what it means to be the "clerk."
