Clergy pre-retirement seminar dates set


The 2007 Mississippi Conference Pre-Retirement Seminar will be April 16-17 at Camp Wesley Pines Retreat Center in Gallman.


This seminar is for clergy who are considering retiring in the next six years. Spouses are invited to attend, also. Others interested are welcome as space is available.


The seminar can help prepare and plan for retirement. Representatives from the General Board of Pension and Health Benefits and Social Security Administration will be present to give projections and guidance on retirement issues. The event will begin with registration at 2 p.m. on April 16. The program will start at 3 p.m. and conclude after lunch on Tuesday.


If you plan to attend, pre-registration is required by March 26 so that reports from Social Security and GBPHB can be secured. There is a non-refundable fee of $10 per person. Please make checks payable to the Mississippi Conference and mail to Byrd Hillman, 25274 Hwy. 19 North, Kosciusko, MS 39090.

With your check, please include your name and Social Security number, and if your spouse is attending, her/his name and Social Security number. Please specify if you wish to spend the night at Wesley Pines.


Those spending the night will need to bring your own linens, pillow and personal items. Because of limited space in the retreat center, do not plan to room with your spouse. However, at registration, if space is available, spouses may be able to stay together.


If you have questions, contact Byrd or Sara Hillman at or at 662-289-3578 or 1-800-586-0113.
