Nonprofit Fiscal Managers Association (NFMA)

Nonprofit organizations have specific and unique financial, human resource, and operational needs that require staff and board members to have a broad set of knowledge around these issues. Our Nonprofit Fiscal Managers Network (NFMA) is a series of eight sessions designed to strengthen skillsets around GAAP, 990 reporting, human resource and operational management, and legal and compliance topics. Attendees will learn from experts in the field as well as each other in a collaborative learning environment. 

NFMA will build your knowledge of these crucial requirements to successfully run a nonprofit organization while building your network of peers in the sector by providing opportunities to meet, mingle, and collaborate. 

Who Should Attend? 

This series is designed for any nonprofit leader or board member who has a role in financial management, accounting, human resources, operations, and compliance. Attendees are often executive directors, chief financial officers, IT staff, fiscal managers, board presidents, human resource officers, and development directors. NFMA is open to any nonprofit leader who wants to learn more about best practices in financial management.
