The diocese’s Congregational Consultants are sponsoring their annual Congregational Business Practices Workshops in February and March to give congregational leaders—especially those new to their roles—an exposure to the basics of good business practices in general, and Episcopal Church business practices in particular. The workshops cover general business practices; compensation and benefits; compliance and reporting; bookkeeping and audits; and safeguarding of assets.
These workshops are important for vestry members, treasurers, officers and clergy--anyone involved in the business matters of the congregation.
The workshop will be offered on four Saturdays, each from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.:
•Feb. 22 at the Cathedral Church of St. Paul (138 Tremont Street) in Boston (register online here);
•Feb. 29 at St. Mark's Church (10 St. Mark's Road) in Burlington (register online here);
•March 14 at St. Peter's Church (165 Main Street) in Buzzards Bay (register online here); and
•March 21 at St. Paul's Church (26 Washington Street) in Malden (register online here).
