As the time approaches for Cindy Miller, associate treasurer of the Dakota Conference, to embark on a new chapter of life called “retirement,” it is an ideal moment to reflect on the contributions she has made during her eight-year journey with the organization.

Cindy stepped into the role of associate treasurer in late December 2015 and filled the vacant position left by Gwen Speak. From the very beginning, she became the steadfast backbone of the Dakota Conference’s financial operations. Her work ethic, competence and attention to detail played a pivotal role in ensuring that finances ran smoothly.

When asked what she will miss about working in the office, Cindy answered, “I love accounting, but the people, the camaraderie with the team, is what I will miss the most.”

Beyond her professional responsibilities, Cindy brought an infectious cheerfulness to the office. Her positive energy and kindness have contributed to making the workplace a better and brighter environment. Whether it’s a challenging day or a celebratory moment, her presence has consistently served as a source of support and joy.

In a heartening display of appreciation, Cindy recently received three dozen roses from a former employee congratulating her on a job well done. It’s a testament to the positive ripple effect she’s had on those fortunate enough to work alongside her.

In response to the question, “What are you looking forward to most in retirement?” Cindy shared, “I have lots of plans! I want to do volunteer work, house projects, spend more time with my family, and travel.”

As Cindy prepares to bid farewell over the next several months, the people of the Dakotas acknowledge the remarkable impact she has had on the team. While her absence will undoubtedly be felt, the collective sentiment is one of deep gratitude for her dedicated service. Warmest wishes extend to Cindy for an abundance of happiness, relaxation and exciting new adventures in her well-deserved retirement.
