Members of Central Southeast Ohio Association,

This year has seen a lot of changes in the staff keeping the Personnel Committee quite busy. I want to thank the members of the Committee for their commitment and diligence.

I also want to update you on the most current changes. Debbie Smetts, our Office Administrator, and Joan Davidson, our Association Registrar, made the decision not to renew their contracts which expire at the end of 2018. Both Deb and Joan have been with us since our new model was initiated and have served us faithfully – and patiently – throughout the initial transition. We are grateful for the gifts they have brought to their positions and offer them our heart-felt thanks.


And now to introduce you to our new staff persons. Upon recommendation from the Personnel Committee Rev. Melodie Rezac was affirmed by the Association Council to serve as our Designated Term Association Administrator. Her responsibilities include nurturing the association’s official link to the wider church, facilitating the search and call process, and supporting/collaborating with Rev. Patricia Battle, our Association Pastor. Melodie brings much experience and knowledge to this position, her skill at organization, and, most of all, her love for CSEOA. She is available to you by appointment.


And, we welcome Mary Plumley as our new Office Administrator. Mary most recently served as Coordinator/Registrar for the Great Ohio Bicycle Adventure, a position she held for 13 years. We are excited that she has agreed to become part of Central Southeast! Beginning January 2, Mary’s office hours will be Tuesday 10:00 – 3:00, Wednesday 1:00 – 5:00, Thursday and Friday 10:00 – 3:00.
