MLGW News Release
MLGW offers business seminar for local churches
October 29, 2007
Memphis Light, Gas and Water Division is offering The Business of Being a Church, a hands-on, educational seminar for ministers and administrative personnel of local churches. The seminar will be held on Friday, Nov. 2, 2007, from 9 a.m. - 2:45 p.m. at the MLGW Training and Development Center at 4949 Raleigh-LaGrange.

MLGW has offered this seminar for more than 10 years; this year, participants may choose from a variety of workshop topics ranging from crime prevention to understanding burial policies and from risk management to generating energy cost savings through MLGW’s “My Bill” Dashboard.

“The goal of the seminar is to provide information to faith leaders that they can later share with their congregations,” says Glen Thomas, MLGW Supervisor of Communications and Public Relations.

“This year, during lunch, attendees will also learn about EnergySmart, a partnership of MLGW and the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), and other government and community organizations designed to help Memphians save money on their energy costs.”

The Business of Being a Church costs $5 per person. Contact MLGW Community Relations at 528-4820 to receive additional information or to register for the seminar.

MLGW is the largest three-service public power utility in the nation, serving more than 420,000 customers in Memphis and Shelby County. A 2007 survey of large metropolitan areas showed that MLGW has the sixth lowest combined rates in the nation.
