Eric Davis Transitions to New Opportunities; Will Depart Oregon Conference April 11

Eric Davis Transitions to New Opportunities; Will Depart Oregon Conference April 11

The Oregon Conference administrative team has greatly appreciated the diligent work of VP for Finance Eric C. Davis since he joined us nearly a year ago. His leadership with the administrative team has been invaluable in identifying our need for significant financial adjustments and helping the Conference begin navigating the path toward stabilization. It will take some time to fully achieve our goal, but many of the difficult-but-necessary changes to reach a balanced budget are underway thanks to Eric’s astute financial guidance.

“I’m grateful for the experience and relationships my family has formed across the Oregon Conference, and I now feel God is calling us to new opportunities,” said Davis. “I thank the conference administrative team for placing confidence in me to have helped chart a course toward improved fiscal health for the Conference going forward. I also embrace this opportunity to prioritize spending more time with my wife and young son.”

Davis has committed to certain key tasks before his April 11 departure, including:

• Ensuring each department will receive its finalized 2024 budget statement and set in motion a regular process of providing these statements to directors.

• Assisting the treasury team with finalizing the 2023 financial statements.

• Beginning work with our treasury team on a cash flow plan for 2024.

“The Oregon Conference truly has been blessed by Eric’s contributions during this financially challenging period; he has provided tremendous leadership with our administrative team under God’s guidance. We also are grateful for the vital projects he will complete before moving on,” said Oregon Conference president, Elder Dan Linrud. “Eric has been a wonderful part of our administrative team and a joy to serve with.”

The search for a new VP for finance begins immediately. The Oregon Conference bylaws require that a recommendation for a treasurer/VP for finance be brought to a joint nominating committee and executive committee to be elected for the remainder of the current five-year term.  

In the interim, treasury functions will be maintained by the present treasury team with support from the North Pacific Union Conference.

Please join us in lifting up Eric and his family in prayer and wishing them the best as they make this transition.
