Tri-Region Staff Support Committee


The participating Atlantic Regions will jointly form a Regional Staff Support Team with two elected representatives from each of the three Regions. The assigned individuals will be a supportive committee, similar to a Community of Faith’s ministry and personnel committee for all Regional staff personnel. Guidelines for this committee are found in a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) document approved by the three Atlantic Regions.

  • Liaison persons if chosen by each staff member (as per MOU)
  • Executive Minister – Staff Support (will also report to Regional Executive periodically on the work of the Staff Support Team.)



  • monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of this model, including how the cost-sharing arrangement is working
  • share experiences and insights about transitional work, including the possibility of any other shared projects
  • help identify improvements in this arrangement from time to time
  • provide support for all staff employed by the Regions
  • work with the Executive Minister in regards to working conditions and duties
