The Asset Management Advisory Team (AMAT) is a group of volunteer professionals in real estate, finance and administration. The bishop is an ex officio member. This team meets several times a year to review specific project direction, set policy direction and provide counsel and support to synod. It reports to Diocesan Council from time to time.
Diocesan assets are substantial. Over 100 land parcels and 44 parishes are wholly owned by the diocese. The diocese also owns one housing corporation and controls several housing societies.
Currently, as required by the Canons, capital projects over $20,000 require approval of Diocesan Council. All capital projects over $250,000 require the oversight of the AMAT.
This team is also responsible for the oversight of our comprehensive login-restricted asset management database which is a comprehensive resource for parishes and includes important information including titles and other legal documents, photographic archives and much more. Contact your parish officers for more information on how to access this database.
