Understanding Conference/Union Level Roles

When adding a new role to conference or union personnel, it is important to understand the following:

  1. An individual is able to add roles to people at an equal or lower level of their own role-type.
    • Example: Conference level can NOT add a conference superintendent or associate superintendent role to an individual.
    • Conference level CAN add a conference or lower role to individuals.
  2. Any individual at the Union level is able to add and/or end roles for conference superintendents. This is not able to be done by anyone at the Conference – as it is the highest role at the Conference level.
  3. The Union Registrar is the managing position for the following roles:
    • Conference+
    • Higher Ed Professor
    • Self-Supporting School Teacher (approved)

Union Roles to Manage

Conference+ role is available to one conference administrative assistant. This role allows for global search and eCertification access specifically for the purpose of vetting hiring candidates.

Higher Ed Professor role is available for professors in our Adventist college and universities. This allows them to have access to Files, Encounter curriculum (if trained), and Demographics.

Self-Supporting School Teacher (approved) role is for teachers teaching Encounter Bible at an “approved” SDA self-supporting school. Contact NAD Secondary or Elementary Directors for a list of approved schools.
