2019 CFO Gathering

Overview

The CFO Gathering will be hosted at Biola University in La Mirada, CA from June 10-12.  The intent of the CFO Gathering is to create an intimate environment for CCCU CFOs to gather and converse about topics and challenges facing your campus. A biblical worldview, combined with pragmatic best practices from your peers at CCCU institutions and other industry thought leaders, will run throughout the agenda.

In addition to sessions specifically geared towards CFOs, the 2019 event will also include an opportunity to share meals and a few cross-disciplinary plenary sessions with campus facilities directors and human resources professionals.

Joint Plenary Session: Whole and Intentional Leader Development
As leaders, the job of developing other leaders is one of our most important charges, but so few of us were given the tools to effectively scale our efforts. We may have been trained in a specific profession, but have been forced to rely on our experience alone when it comes to investing in and inspiring faithful leaders all around us. Dr. Rob McKenna is the Founder of WiLD Leaders, Chair of Industrial-Organizational Psychology at Seattle Pacific University, and author of numerous publications including his most recent book Composed: The Heart and Science of Leading Under Pressure. A unique combination of scholar and leader, Dr. McKenna will offer us practical and research-based insight for developing whole leaders on our campuses and in our communities.
Rob McKenna, Chair and Associate Professor of Industrial-Organizational Psychology, Seattle Pacific University

Travel & Accommodations

Biola’s campus rests on the border of Orange and Los Angeles counties, putting students just minutes from all that Southern California has to offer — including entertainment, cultural riches and a wealth of internship and career opportunities. Surfing and sunbathing are a mere 25 miles away. Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm are even closer. Half an hour up the freeway in Los Angeles, students can catch TV tapings, peruse the Getty Center’s vast art collection or soak up live music at historic theaters and concert halls. Baseball, basketball, hockey and soccer fans can find major-league entertainment throughout the year.

If you’ve selected a registration option that does include housing, you will be housed in a two bedroom, suite-style dorm. Each suite includes a private bathroom, and each room includes a sink and vanity. Each registrant will receive their own bedroom, but will share a bathroom with a suite mate. Linen packages are included (you will not need to bring your own sheets, towels, or pillows). Toiletries are not included.

If you have selected a registration option that does not include on-campus housing and are looking for nearby hotels, please refer to the links below:
