Developing a Fiscally Accountable Nonprofit Board
Monday, January 28, 2019
Presenter: Kelly Mathews, Chief Operating Officer, NYCON
A nonprofit board is responsible for ensuring that the organization is appropriately stewarding the resources entrusted to it and following all legal and ethical standards. This session will emphasize how a board can efficiently organize itself to make sound fiscal decisions and maintain accountability to donors, funding sources, constituencies and regulating bodies. It will emphasize the board’s key financial oversight responsibilities including the role of the board and its committees vis-vis management and the independent auditor, understanding a financial report with respect to cash vs. accrual accounting and key indicators; and budget development.
This workshop is part of Governance Matters’ monthly training series, Practical Solutions for Today’s Nonprofit Governance Challenges. These sessions cover some of the most challenging aspects of nonprofit board governance, such as defining the expectations of board service, building leadership, improving fundraising strategies and engaging in meaningful strategic planning. Both board members and staff are encouraged to attend, and are welcome to attend one, several or all of the sessions.
Governance Matters is an affiliate of the New York Council of Nonprofits (NYCON).
