Noris Bustamante joined Balboa Union Church in September 2016, after moving back to Panama from Sacramento, California. She was elected as Vice-President of the Council in the January 2017 elections, and then moved to Treasurer of the Council in the April 2017 elections. Noris is now (2018) the Chair of Worship & Ministry, responsible for organising our Sunday services. Noris has over 30 years experience as treasurer of not-for-profit organisations, particularly churches and so is well-suited to the position.
Noris volunteers actively in the church, attending the 2017 Arigatou conference on behalf of Balboa Union Church with other members of our staff and congregation. She also provides chaplaincy services to those in the AAAM program.
