    Valeski to be Administrative Assistant for Finance and Benefits

    September 17, 2014 / By UNY Communications / .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)

    The Upper New York Conference is pleased to announce that Julie Valeski has accepted the position of Administrative Assistant for Finance and Benefits.

    Valeski has served as the Conference Receptionist/Support Services Clerk since Sept. 10, 2013. Valeski will remain in her current position until a replacement is hired.

    "I am pleased that Julie has demonstrated the skills necessary to move into this position and has the desire to serve in these ministry areas," said Conference Benefits Officer Vicki Putney. "Her proven customer service skills will complement our team well."

    The Benefits Office has been without an administrative assistant for about a year, Putney said, and the retirement of Finance Team Support Leah Robinson earlier this month prompted the revamp of that position to provide administrative support for both of these ministry areas.

    Valeski, who is a member of Christ Community United Methodist Church in Syracuse, has served as Director of Christian Education there for the past six years. In 2012, she was administrative assistant at the church; before that she was a stay-at-home mom. Valeski has a bachelor's degree in Community and Human Services from SUNY Empire State College.

    Valeski and her husband, Jeff, have a daughter Madyson, 14, and a son Lukas, 9. The family lives in Baldwinsville.

    The Conference is accepting applications for the position of Receptionist/Support Services Clerk. See a full job description and how to apply here.
