Special Announcement on CMBA Annual Associational Meeting
The Visionary Leadership Community has decided not to hold a traditional annual associational meeting this year in the evening. Instead, we are sponsoring CMBA Annual Meeting Luncheon at the CMBA office. This luncheon will be held on Tuesday, October 15th at Noon.
It will replace both the Missional Leadership Community (Executive Board) gathering for the fall and the Associational Annual Meeting.
Who Should Come? Pastors (or their representative) and at least one layperson from each church based on the size of the church.
What is the Agenda?
- Required Business – (1) Election of officers for 2019-2020. (2) Approval of 2020 budget.
- State of the Association – Executive Director George Bullard will present a two-year overview of the progress made in the association from 2017-2019.
- Empowering Congregations – An overview of the added value services to congregations which have been created during the past two years will be shared and explained. Several grant programs for churches have been established and we will be explaining these and sharing information as to how churches can apply for them.
How Can I Register for Lunch?
- Register at cmbaregister.org
- Lunch will be catered by Blue Marlin Signature Caterer and will include shrimp and grits and one other entrée.
