2020 Budget Narrative for the Presbytery of Scioto Valley
Minimum Compensation Guidelines for 2020. Budget and Planning Information. (Terms approved by the Presbytery of Scioto Valley, September 17, 2019.)
At the last Presbytery meeting the Commission for Presbytery Operations (CPO) presented for first reading a budget for 2020 and proposed Per Capita needed to balance the budget. Although budget expenditures from current income are again not growing this year, dramatic decreases in member numbers is necessitating an increase in Per Capita to maintain our efforts together as a Presbytery. Per Capita needed is $45 per person. Slides from a presentation by CPO chair Bob Gustafson documenting the current situation. CPO will continue its work on budget and Per Capita and present for action in November.
Excel Version - Per Capita was finalized February 18, 2020, at $37.75.
