The Professional Association of United Methodist Church Secretaries (PAUMCS) was organized nationally on April 14, 1982 in Dallas, TX. The Missouri Chapter was chartered in 1985 and the General Council on Finance and Administration is our certifying agency and approved sponsor.  Legislation was officially adopted at the 1988 General Conference for our inclusion into The Book of Discipline (907.13).

PAUMCS is open to United Methodist Church Secretaries, administrative assistants, general office agency personnel, Episcopal personnel, district personnel and Annual Conference office personnel. Membership shall be open to all persons presently or previously, paid or volunteer, engaged in administrative and secretarial work in any local church or beyond the local church, extension ministry and/or in any agency of the United Methodist Church.
