Annual Congregational Reporting 2018

by admin on February 2nd, 2018

 

Two surveys are conducted each calendar year in order to obtain important data from each NEMA parish – the ACNA’s Congregational Reporting and NEMA’s State of the Diocese. Beginning in 2016, the schedule for the latter was made coincident with the former, which currently is in effect through March 1, 2018.  The objective of this schedule change is to minimize duplication of effort required at parishes for gathering and reporting statistical data. This new schedule also provides time for more effective analysis and meaningful reporting of the data you submit for NEMA’s State of the Diocese.

Several (but not all) data requested through each of these surveys is identical.  Information generated using data supplied through these surveys is important because:

† It is used to ensure the proportional representation of your parish and our diocese in the councils of the Church;

† It helps our diocese move beyond anecdotal information in order to evaluate larger trends within our Church;

† It is an opportunity to update vital contact information for you and your congregation.

The information provided not only serves these purposes, but also substantiates your local parish as a member of the REC for the pupose of maintaining your local 501(c)3 status. This status allows parishioners to deduct contributions to your parish from their income taxes and may be critical in obtaining relief from your state’s sales taxes.
