A one day symposium to learn about the transfer of wealth study findings for individual western Pennsylvania counties and strategies to capture some of the wealth transfer will be held Friday, November 13th, from 10:30am to 3:30pm at the Seneca Hills Bible Conference campus.  Specific tactics covered will be how to create a legacy society, cultivating alumni for a local school endowment, and using local pride to create community endowments.  The symposium sponsors are Bridge Builders Community Foundations, the Center for Rural Pennsylvania, and the Community Foundation for Western Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio, and the Seneca Hills Bible Conference.

The symposium is designed to help nonprofits, schools, community foundations, and churches participate in the massive transfer of $193.38 billion in assets over the next ten years by retiring Pennsylvania baby boomers.  If you are motivated to help your community develop endowment funds, this is your time in the classroom.  The presenters will be Barry Denk, Director of the Center for Rural Pennsylvania, Bob Potter, former Executive Director of Centre County Community Foundation and now executive of Potter Development Services, and Larry Haynes, Executive Director of the Community Foundation for Western Pennsylvania and Eastern Ohio.

You must register by Friday, November 6th, either by email at www.senecahills.org or by phone at (814) 432-3026.  Your cost is $10 per person to cover coffee and donuts in the morning and lunch.  Once registered, you may pay at the door on the day of the symposium.  The campus is not far from I-80 to the South and Franklin PA to the North.  The address is 276 Damascus Road, Polk PA.  Google a map so you don’t get lost in those hills.  Hopefully there will be Clarion Friends there.  Charles Marlin
