Parish Administrators' Collaboration
 
Mission Statement:  The Parish Administrators’ Collaboration (PAC) of the Diocese of Maine is a community of professionals who support one another, share knowledge and resources, and support the ministry of our congregations and the mission of the Church.
 
Membership is open to the parish administrator of each congregation in the diocese, whether paid or volunteer. 
A “Parish Administrator” is defined as the one person in each church who is central to the overall administration of the congregation, including - but not limited to - office coordination, calendaring and appointments, secretarial work, preparation of materials, etc.
