Event Description

Demystifying Finances for Executive Directors and Boards

Todd Kimball, Partner, CFO Selections 

The financial information necessary to successfully operate and navigate a non-profit can be complex and overwhelming. Not only do you need to make sure you are receiving the right information, but Executive Directors and Board members need to know how to interpret it and ask the right questions. Do you have an accurate picture of the organization’s health? What should you be looking at, and what types of questions will ensure accountability from your finance and accounting team?

This session will provide an overview of the basic financial statements and how to understand them. We’ll dive into the types of information Directors and Boards should be reviewing and things to look for. We will also talk about how to effectively work with your finance and accounting team to achieve greater transparency and improved conversation

Area of Nonprofit Excellence - Financial Oversight and Governance

Every learning opportunity NAO offers is aligned with one of nine areas of our Principles and Practices for Nonprofit Excellence that NAO believes are critical to every nonprofit’s effectiveness and success. Diversity, equity and inclusion are essential for a thriving, effective and successful nonprofit; therefore, DE&I is embedded across all nine areas.

This event focuses on Financial Oversight and Governance. For additional resources in this category, visit: Financial Oversight and Governance.
