Session: B6 - Building Blocks of Compensation Plans with Elaine Sommerville

Understanding these core building blocks assists churches in planning compensation for all staff positions, but these building blocks are especially crucial in planning executive compensation packages. Whether a church has 1 employee or 200 employees, these core concepts should be addressed in creating compensation plans.

Session: C7 – 7 Church Financial Metrics Worth Tracking with Rick Cadden, CCA, CCBA

Each participant will receive a workbook to use in class and have later to use in your church setting.

Session E5- Retirement Planning for Your Facility, Tim Cool

  • Are you planning for your personal retirement? Maybe you have an IRA or 401k. That is great. Are you equally as prudent with the retirement planning for the components of your facility? The reality is that you will “retire” (I.e. replace) nearly every physical component of your church facility. You will retire every HVAC unit. You will retire every roof and parking space. Retirement can also involve looking for ways of enjoying life without working as hard. In the facility world, this could the inclusion of system automation and integrations. If you are looking to improve your facility retirement planning and long-term life cycle, join us for Retirement Planning Workshop.
  • Sunday, July 14— E Workshops — 8:30am — 10:15am
