Join CLA at The Church Network 2024 national conference to take part in more than 60 relevant, well-presented workshops on subjects like administration, church facilities, finance and stewardship, legal and tax, human resources, and technology.

This conference is a chance for church administrative leaders to relax and refresh, to renew and build new friendships, to be challenged by renowned keynote speakers, and to gain information about products and services.

CLA industry professionals will be on hand to present the following informative sessions:

Prepare for the Shortage in Finance Staff

Tuesday, July 9 | 10:50 a.m. to 12:20 p.m.

CLA speakers: Jeff Roberts and Keven Truhler

The aging of the church in the United States — along with fewer young people going into accounting — means most churches will struggle to find and keep qualified staff.

This session will discuss the current employment environment and how to be strategic about retention. We’ll also review strategies to simplify and automate processes and procedures, identify areas in your church to outsource (beyond finance), and how to have a strong relationship with your outsourced provider.

Managing vs. Leading Church Finances

Tuesday, July 9 | 12:40 – 1:55 p.m.

CLA speakers: Jeff Roberts and Keven Truhler

It takes more than knowing debits and credits to lead church finances. This session provides training on topics including:

  • Strategic metrics (identifying and visualizing)
  • Collaboration strategies with church board and leadership
  • Prioritization
  • Conflict management
  • How to move from information provider to strategic partner in your church

This session is designed to help you gain confidence and practical application for your leadership journey!
