Why have honorarium guidelines?
The following honorarium guidelines have been provided at the request of the 2006 Presbyterian Women Churchwide Business Meeting voting delegates. They are guidelines for those who wish to provide honorariums for national leaders, the PW/Horizons Bible study or Suggestions for Leaders author, a professional person or others you wish to thank monetarily for time spent preparing and then participating in an event. These are suggested guidelines, not rules, so please feel free to apply them accordingly.
Note: This is not a PW or PC(USA) policy. Guidelines were created at the request of the 2006 PW Business Meeting voting delegates for those seeking assistance in making decisions about compensation. Local churches and presbyteries are welcome to continue to do what is customary for the area.
