- Reimbursing speaker travel expenses related to the speaking engagement (e.g., mileage for vehicle; train fare). Reimbursement forms are available from the Speaker Co-ordinator.
Benefits to the host group or church
- If an honorarium is given to the speaker at the speaking engagement, it is to be made out to the EFC and submitted to the EFC. If however, for some reason the cheque got made out to the speaker, the speaker must then sign the back of the cheque and submit it to the EFC. An honorarium is never to be kept by the speaker
- If the speaker receives donations at the event, the donations must be submitted to the EFC.
- Create a growing awareness about the ministries of the EFC, and the church’s response to God’s work
- Inspire, move, and further engage congregants with the EFC.
- Ultimately, the ministries and commitments of the church will benefit from any gifts received in response to speaking engagements.
