    Susan LaTessa has been hired as the Human Resources/Office Manager for the UNY Conference office. She replaces Debi Marshall, our former Human Resources Generalist, who has decided to pursue other career opportunities.

    Susan comes to the UNY Conference with over 20 years of Human Resources experience, in banking, non-profit, and manufacturing. She is married and has two children; her son Anthony is 13 and her daughter Rose is 11. Susan is very involved with her children’s’ sports teams, having coached baseball, softball, and hockey.  She is also a USA swimming official.

    Susan is delighted to bring her experience to the UNY Conference; she said “I am excited to be able to share my expertise and I am also exited to learn more. I am a sponge; I want to be a person who helps move things along so that Vicki (Swanson) or others can take a vacation without having to worry about anything.”

    Susan’s supervisor, Vicki Swanson said, “We are very pleased to be welcoming Susan into our Conference office staff family!  Susan comes to us with wide-ranging experience in Human Resources, which will help her to adapt to the roles here as both HR and Office Manager.  While keeping on top of employee relations and compliance, Susan will also help us to create a more coordinated support system in the office.  I’m really looking forward to working with her in these areas! ”

    In addition to Human Resources roles, Susan will also be serving as the UNY Conference Office Manager.

    With more than 134,000 members, the Upper New York Annual (Regional) Conference of The United Methodist Church comprises 865 local churches and 85 new faith communities in 12 districts, covering 48,000 square miles in 49 of the 62 counties in New York state. Our mission is to “live the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to be God’s love with our neighbors in all places."
