Melanie Ringa confirmed as OCA Treasurer

The Holy Synod of Bishops of the Orthodox Church in America, at its 2009 Fall Session, confirmed Melanie Ringa as Treasurer of the Orthodox Church in America.

A Certified Public Accountant, Melanie Ringa has an extensive background in accounting and finance. She is currently Associate Chancellor for Finance at Saint Vladimir’s Seminary, Crestwood, NY.

Ms. Ringa’s name had been presented to the Holy Synod by the OCA Metropolitan Council during the Council’s 2009 Fall Session.

In discussing the selection of a new OCA Treasurer, members of the Metropolitan Council also passed a motion expressing thanks to outgoing Treasurer, the Rev. Michael Tassos, for his exemplary work for the OCA during a very difficult chapter in the Church’s history.
