Event description

Description

This workshop ranges in difficulty from elementary to intermediate level, and all of it is suitable for attendees who have minimal technical accounting background, as well as those attendees who possess an accounting foundation. The emphasis will be on providing attendees with practical knowledge that can be used immediately. Whether you are new to your agency’s board or staff or have substantial experience in the nonprofit environment, this workshop will help enhance your ability to prepare and use financial information for better decision making.

Brad Johnson, a former chief financial officer and auditor of nonprofit organizations, will present in a seminar style format, which includes interaction with attendees. After the presentation, he will remain to respond to areas of interest of attendees.

At the beginning of the workshop, each attendee will have an opportunity to suggest an issue or question to be covered. In addition, among the topics to be discussed are:

  • Design and implementation of a meaningful system of internal controls
  • How to get the most out of Quickbooks
  • Creating meaningful reports for the board, funders and other third parties
  • Budgeting, its preparation, role and use as a management tool
  • Preparing Cash Projections
