Safeguarding Your Nonprofit and Internal Controls
June 10 , 2013
As fiduciary agents of charitable gifts and other revenue to be used for the public good, nonprofit staff, boards and other volunteers must exercise prudent due care pursuant to legal, ethical and financial standards and best practices. This highly interactive session will provide a thorough review of policies and procedures to safeguard your nonprofit against negligence or intentional abuse. The role of the board of directors will be explained in detail. Specific strategies and internal controls will be reviewed to help any size organization make certain it is protected. Check lists with clear "how to's" for both board and staff to easily implement will be shared.
The workshops will all be from 11-2 pm with lunch provided. It will be at the Inn at DePauw in Greencastle, IN. The workshop is $25 per person or $15 if paid and registered by June 3rd.
