2021 Ultimate Financial & Legal Conference Hosts 175 Churches and Ministries
On October 25-26, 2021, Alliance for Greater Works™ partnered with Sommerville & Associates, P.C., Ratliff & Associates, P.C., and Weycer, Kaplan, Pulaski & Zuber, P.C. to host its 14th Annual Ultimate Financial and Legal Conference™ (UFLC).
This premiere conference provides ministry leaders with up-to-date financial, legal, fundraising, talent management, and risk management best practices. The 2021 program was specifically tailored to assist in recharging ministry in the areas of nonprofit accounting, branding and marketing employment law, working with a remote workforce, operating benevolence and assistance programs and the latest tax and legal matters facing churches and faith-based organizations. Each conference presenter was an experienced subject matter expert bringing solutions to issues facing local churches, Christian nonprofit leaders, financial administrators, and resource development staff.
After missing the 2020 UFLC due to the pandemic, attendees were excited to attend this year’s conference. Sessions included Bridging the Generational Gap, Navigating Emerging Risks Today, Branding in the Age of Social Media, Employment Law Update, and much more.
One of the most talked about sessions was From Allyship to Solidarity: A Purpose-Driven Response for Bridging Racial and Cultural Divides led by Alliance’s Managing Director, Dr. Angela Johnson. This session was informative, interactive, and thought-provoking. Dr. Johnson connected with the audience during the case studies she presented. The audience members were counted off and placed into teams. Each team was given a case study to discuss and present to the entire room. The case studies were highly effective in highlighting the unconscious bias that exist surrounding gender and race.
The 2021 UFLC was a huge success. Attendees were eager to learn and excited to network with other churches, ministries, and faith-based organizations. Each presenter was impactful and added great value. Tax and Legal Updates for Religious Organizations continued to be a crowd favorite, especially for those in managing finances or working in the legal department. We look forward to the 2022 Ultimate Financial and Legal Conference. Mark your calendars for October 24 -25, 2022 and consider sending your team next year!
