Saying goodbye is rarely easy. Saying goodbye to someone with Miranda’s faith and expertise is nearly impossible. But change is inevitable, and so our whole CBOQ team is preparing to say a fond farewell our Director of Finance and Administration, Miranda Queh, when she retires and starts her new adventures.
We asked her what she thinks she would miss most about being a part of the CBOQ team. Her first answer? She will miss the dedicated, faithful church treasurers that she has so enjoyed serving.
During her time here, Miranda has made many invaluable contributions. She has improved the CBOQ benefits plan, developed the group pension investment fund, and provided excellent resources for church administration. She has run workshops for church treasurers to help them do their job more easily and effectively. She’s helped those on the cusp of retirement to prepare for the days ahead. She has faced sheets of numbers, thorough auditors and the numerically challenged around the office. And she has done it all with gentle grace and patience.
Miranda isn’t quite done yet – she’ll be with us until June 2015 – and during that time she will continue to assist all our church’s administrators to excel in their service. We are preparing for change, but thanks to Miranda’s careful planning, we have a bit of time to do it.
