Cabinet Recommends No Cost of Living Increases for 2010
After considering current cost of living figures for our area, the Cabinet of the California-Nevada Annual Conference is recommending no cost of living increases for pastors for the year 2010. The Consumer Price Index, reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, actually has gone down 2 percent since this time last year. For the greater Bay Area of Oakland, San Francisco, and San Jose, the consumer price index is flat. The Cabinet made its recommendation after discussion with Conference Treasurer Diane Knudsen.
Church leaders are encouraged to consult with their district superintendent, or to contact Diane Knudsen directly, for more information or help in interpreting this information.
