George “Buzzy” Anding Elected President-Elect of the United Methodist Church Conference Chancellors Association

April 27, 2021
Baton Rouge attorney George “Buzzy” Anding has been elected President-Elect of the United Methodist Church Conference Chancellors Association, a national organization of attorneys who, upon nomination by their Bishop and election by the annual conference(s) of their episcopal areas, serve as legal advisors to the various Bishops and Annual Conferences of the United Methodist denomination, on matters of both secular and ecclesial law. 

Anding says he is honored and humbled to have this opportunity to lead this group who he considers being some of the brightest and most selflessly-serving disciples of our denomination.  

"In a very difficult time for United Methodism, our association continues to work with our bishops and annual conferences to help guide our denomination toward a stronger and brighter future," said Anding. "I look forward to being a part of that effort and ministry."  

Mr. Anding has served in the capacity of Chancellor to the Louisiana Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church, and two of its resident bishops, for 10 years.  He has previously served as the Louisiana Annual Conference Lay Leader, and as an elected lay delegate to the quadrennial United Methodist Church General and Jurisdictional Conferences on three occasions, leading the Louisiana delegation (as first-elected lay delegate) in 2008. 

A 1974 graduate of LSU Law School, Mr. Anding is a member of the Baton Rouge law firm of Rainer Anding & Talbot.  He and his wife, Carol, are members of Broadmoor United Methodist Church of Baton Rouge, where he co-teaches the Lagniappe adult Sunday School class.
