Environmentally Responsible Investing for Congregations WorkshopEnvironmentally responsible ways to invest endowment funds and other pools of money is a topic of frequent debate in many organizations including congregations. These discussions are often fueled by media coverage or by single issue advocates but do not apply a more systematic approach using key environmental and creation care principles. This workshop addresses directly the important role congregational investment leaders can play in developing key principles, assessing responsible investment choices, assuring financial performance and communicating the principles, practices, and results to the congregation and community. The workshop is also targeted for individuals within congregations that perceive the benefit to this approach as well.Recommended Participants: Congregation at large, congregational members involved with green teams, social action committees, finance and budget committees, boards of directors, trustees and individuals.Julie Singer with Ramond James, who specializes in socially and environmentally responsible investing, will be our presenter.For more information contact:Program ManagerHoosier Interfaith Power and Light
