NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Church Pension Group (CPG), a financial services organization that serves the Episcopal Church, announced today that in recognition of its 100 years of service it will host a series of centennial conversations, called Insights & Ideas, that will address topics of interest to the Church and CPG—The Demographics of a Changing Church and Investing for Positive Impact.
The inaugural event will be held on Thursday, October 26, 2017, at St. Bartholomew's Church in New York City. Additional events will take place in Minneapolis (November 3, 2017), Houston (January 24, 2018), and San Francisco (February 7, 2018). All are invited, especially clergy and those who serve the Episcopal Church professionally, wardens and vestry members (e.g., Investment Committees). There is no cost to attend the events, but individuals must register at www.cpg.org/Insights&Ideas, as space is limited.
“As we mark a centennial of service to the Episcopal Church, we are excited to share insights and collect ideas that can shape the future," said Mary Kate Wold, CEO and President of CPG. "Insights & Ideas will bring together thought leaders from the Church, the private sector, and CPG who will address topics of interest to those we serve.”
Each event will consist of two expert panel discussions. The first panel, The Demographics of a Changing Church, will examine demographics, deployment, and compensation trends impacting the Church of today and tomorrow. The second panel, Investing for Positive Impact, will discuss powerful ways to achieve measurable social and environmental impact alongside competitive financial returns.
