Event description

Description

Dear Colleagues and Friends,


Tech Networks of Boston (also known as "TNB") hosts Roundtable sessions every other Friday afternoon; these are informal discussions and presentations, on a wide range of topics of interest to TNB's staff, nonprofit clients, and friends. We hope that you will join us for our next session, which Third Sector New England is co-hosting with us at Boston’s NonProfit Center.


On November 21st, our Roundtable session will be on improving nonprofit accounting through collaboration. Our featured guests will be Donna Pina Robinson (from Community Catalyst and Health Care For All), and Nicole Wright and Thomas Ball (from Barrington Wright Associates). These three bring to the table many years of collaborating to ensure that Community Catalyst and Health Care For All’s accounting and finance operations are smooth and effective.


In this session, Donna, Nicole, and Tom will raise some crucial questions:


What are the benefits to having a long-term collaborative working relationship with outside professionals for assistance and expertise in accounting and financial operations?


What are some of the best practices and potential pitfalls to keep in mind?


How can you determine if this type of collaboration might, or might not, work well for your organization?


Our featured guests will kick off what we hope to be a lively discussion, by giving their thoughts on these questions and more. They'll start with a brief overview of the collaborative working relationship Community Catalyst and Health Care for All have had with Barrington Wright Associates for over ten years. We know that many local nonprofits have, or are considering, a similar arrangement. We'd love to hear your thoughts and perspective, so, please join us as we all share our thoughts and experience on this interesting topic.


Here’s a little more about our featured guests:



Before joining Community Catalyst and Health Care For All, Donna Pina Robinson was the business manager at Catholic Charities. She started her career in banking, and became involved in various nonprofit organizations through volunteerism. Donna led the drive for employees to receive two days off with pay to volunteer while working at Fleet Bank, which became Bank of America. As a result of her dedication she received the Volunteer of the Year and received $10,000 to donate to her favorite charity. Donna holds a bachelor's degree in finance from Bentley College and a master's degree in business administration from Simmons College.


As the founder of Barrington Wright Associates (BWA), Nicole Wright has served nonprofit organizations for over twenty years, providing assistance with her financial, accounting and management expertise. She has worked with Rosemarie and Donna at Community Catalyst and Health Care for All for over ten years. Prior to founding BWA, Nicole served in financial management and staff positions for several Boston area companies including as an auditor for a Fortune 500 company. Nicole received a B.S. in Accounting from Northeastern University.


Joining Nicole in the early years of BWA, Thomas Ball
has also provided financial, accounting, and management expertise to nonprofit organizations for twenty years, including his work with Rosemarie, Donna and their staff at Community Catalyst and Health Care for All. Tom previously worked in management level marketing and financial positions and as an auditor at several Fortune 500 companies. Tom has an M.S.I.A. (MBA equivalent) from Carnegie-Mellon University and a B.A. from Boston College.


Please note that session will NOT be a sales pitch for any product or service. The TNB Roundtable series is an educational opportunity for nonprofit professionals to learn along with their peers from other organizations.


Please respond to this invitation, to let us know whether you'll be attending. We are running a very popular series and have to track the head count carefully, so a definite YES or NO is real help to us.


Best regards from Deborah
