José D. Espósito, assistant to the president for evangelism at the Columba Union who participated in more than eight of the meetings since last fall, notes the common denominator that drew visitors.

He previously served as the treasurer at the Northeastern Conference.

“Robert has a rare combination of knowledge and experience in nonprofit accounting and accounting information systems application,” says Emmanuel Asideu, treasurer.
