Registration ends July 17 for Financial Well-Being Retreat 2015, hosted by Board University in partnership with the Presbyterian Foundation. If you haven't reserved your spot, now is the time to do so.
Over the years, Board University -- the educational program of the Board of Pensions -- has received requests from plan members, employers, and mid councils asking for new ways to help prepare them for improved well-being and stewardship. Board University staff members have listened to that feedback and are designing new offerings to complement established seminars and e-learning modules.
Financial Well-Being Retreat 2015 on August 17 and 18 at MontreatConference Center is a new offering. Dedicated to helping active Benefits Plan members achieve better stewardship of personal and church finances, here are a few key details about the retreat.
- 12 workshops presented three times during the event by staff from the Board of Pensions, the Presbyterian Foundation, and Fidelity Investments.
- Registrants select six workshops to attend when they register for the event.
- There is no Board of Pensions registration fee. A $20 per person meal fee is payable to Montreat Conference Center. (Meal service is being subsidized by the Board and the Foundation.)
- The retreat was recently approved by the Assistance Program as an alternative that may be used to fulfill the Seminary Debt Assistance Grant application requirement related to the Getting in Shape Fiscally seminar.
Online registration is the only way to register for Financial Well-Being Retreat 2015. It is available through Friday, July 17, requires a personal email address, and is limited to the first 150 people registered.
