Best Practices in Internal Controls and Financial Reporting
Nonprofits must exercise sound financial practices
using financial information in the current
economic and funding climate. Protecting current assets and understanding today's financial picture with the ability to forecast for the future is critical to the sustainability of nonprofits. The workshop will focus on:
-Financial reporting to plan, monitor and evaluate operations. Budgeting, cash flow budgeting, internal and external reporting are critical to measuring and communicating the financial picture of the organization.
- Internal controls to preserve the current funding and assets. Develop the who, what, when and how of an effective and efficient framework for a finance office, whether it be one person wearing multiple hats or a full-sized department. As nonprofits restructure and evolve, care must be taken that internal controls are updated for today's climate.
Join us as we address the critical concepts of internal controls, budgeting and financial reporting in order to ensure the future of your nonprofit.
A manual of sample policies and tools will be provided to each registrant.
