Board members have a fiduciary responsibility to the organizations they serve, including being fully informed about the organization’s financial status and trends. This session will help board members gain a meaningful understanding of the nonprofit organizations they serve by learning to appraise and evaluate financial statements. This understanding will assist board members in communicating confidently with the chief executive about the financial performance of the organization and provide the framework necessary for financial oversight and sound decision making.
Join us for this interactive session with Karla Jones-Weber, CPA, CFO & Vice-President of Finance and Administration at the Community Foundation and Kris Pete-Swanson, Controller at the Community Foundation. You will leave with a basic and solid understanding of the separate financial oversight roles of the board and administration, learn key financial terminology, analyze financial statements using key financial ratios and learn about annual audit requirements to enable you to fulfill your fiduciary role as a board member.
