Practical Solutions for Today’s Nonprofit Governance Challenges - Workshop III


Developing a Fiscally Accountable Nonprofit Board

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.
