Did you know that our Fellowship Administrator, Mary-Elizabeth Cotton, is employed by us on a part-time basis? Her position is nominally eighteen hours a week, and is supervised by the Minister. In order to accommodate the needs of others, Mary-Elizabeth’s schedule is flexible. Regular “walk in” office hours are from 2pm to 4pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but it is always best to call first. At these and other times in the office, Mary-Elizabeth works on the tasks required by her position description, attends staff and committee meetings, and works with outside vendors. Her responsibilities have recently expanded, following the retirement of Pat Yaros as the Fellowship’s Treasurer, to include more financial administration, an area in which Mary-Elizabeth has extensive experience and expertise. As necessary for work to be completed, she occasionally works from home as well. This Spring, Mary-Elizabeth will have held this position for five years.
