BOARD DEVELOPMENT SERIES CONTINUES!
Financial Oversight for Board Members: Understanding What the Numbers Mean
Friday, September 8 11:30 am - 1:30 pm Williamsburg
Randy P. Howard, President,
501 Advisors is coming back for Part Two! After a successful workshop on the Fiduciary Responsibilities of Board Members, Randy will return to provide a deeper dive
into financial oversight. Not every nonprofit Board Member arrives with a deep appreciation for, or even a passing familiarity with, financial reports, yet each carries a fiduciary responsibility to ensure that resources are deployed appropriately. Even more importantly, Board Members are the primary advocates for the organization, and must be prepared to tell the organization's story - including the 'financial story.' For new and experienced Board Members, enhance your understanding of your role in the dynamics of nonprofit finance.TO REGISTER,click here.
