     Comments from some members………….
     “The SEJUMACBA conference is a wonderful time of learning, relaxation and renewal. What a blessing to have this
     opportunity each year for gathering with friends and colleagues to become better equipped for ministry.”
     -- Rusty Taylor, Administrator, Frazer UMC, Montgomery, AL
     “The Conference at Lake Junaluska always provides relevant information and spiritual nourishment, but the fellowship
     and experiences I share with other administrators is invaluable in my day to day ministry at the church.”
     --Julie Platte, Dir. of Administration, St. Stephen UMC, Charlotte, NC
     “The technical knowledge learned at the annual regional conferences is invaluable, but the wealth of knowledge
     available from this group of administrators is awesome! Whatever issues your church is dealing with; most likely there
     will be someone in this group that has some expertise to share about their experience with the same issue.”
     --Vicki Eleazer, Administrator, Concord UMC, Knoxville, TN
     “As church administrators, we deal with a wide array of issues and usually end up making our own decisions about the
     best solution to problems. It’s a very valuable experience getting to meet and spend time with peers and share ideas and
     gain new resources.”
     --Gene Ray, Administrator, Johns Creek UMC, Duluth, GA
     “The conference at Lake Junaluska has proven to be one of the very best tools that I have acquired in my position as
     Business Administrator. In addition to the cherished friendships that have been formed, the attendees and invited
     experts assist me in taking care of God’s house throughout the year.
     --Wanda J. Antwine, Business Administrator, Central UMC, Florence, SC
     “The next best thing to knowing something is knowing where to find it. Beyond the knowledge gained at the annual
     conference at beautiful Lake Junaluska, these fine folks are my 'Google' throughout the year!”
     --Ken Himes, Administrator, Trinity UMC, Opelika, AL
