The office of the secretariat has many responsibilities such as record keeping of actions taken by conference boards and committees, tracking conference membership, maintaining service records, issuing employee credentials and serving as the first point of contact on human resource issues.  In the Alaska Conference, the secretary carries significant responsibility for a number of ministry departments as well including Sabbath School, evangelism, church planting, personal ministries and lay training.

The secretary also serves as chairman and member of various boards and committees within the conference and works closely with the president in strategic planning and management in fulfilling the mission, vision and values of the conference.
