United Methodist Women Officers
While any woman can join United Methodist Women as a member, United Methodist Women elected leaders must be laywomen who are willing to commit their talents, time, energy and effort to serve God’s mission. Presidents at all levels of the organization must be members of a United Methodist church.
Each local organization of United Methodist Women should have a leadership team that, at minimum, consists of a president, vice president, treasurer, secretary and chair of committee on nominations. Additional leaders are chosen and committees or task groups are formed as needed: larger groups may have members responsible for spiritual growth, program resources, leadership development, mission education, and service & advocacy.
