Come join us for fun in the sun while you sharpen your church financial skills!

On Thursdays May 17, we'll start the day Lisa London, CPA and author of the Accountant Beside You series will share what you need to know about your church finances whether you are the pastor, treasurer, board member or bookkeeper.

Eulica Kimber, CPA, co-author of Using QuickBooks Online for Small Nonprofits & Churches and an auditor for the federal government, will teach you easy-to-implement controls that will substantially reduce the opportunity for fraud or theft.

Vickey Boatright, the Freechurchaccounting.com blogger, will be joining Lisa to explain what rules and regulations churches must follow to keep the IRS and their donors in compliance and satisfied.

After an included picnic lunch on the beach at the gorgeous Dunes Club of Atlantic Beach, NC, you'll break into groups for the afternoon.  You have a choice of:

Atlantic Beach is 150 miles from Raleigh and the Raleigh Durham Airport (RDU). The nearest commercial airport is Coastal Carolina Regional Airport (EWN) in New Bern, NC.

As it is a beach community, there are numerous options for rooms, but to play it safe, we have reserved a block of double bed suites at the Hampton Inn Atlantic Beach for $99 (plus tax) a night for the weeknights. If you'd like to stay for the weekend, the additional nights would be $129. Ask for the Accountant Beside You block.
