CLA Roundtable April 21: Communicating Financial Information to Nonfinancial People

Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation | April 14th, 2016

CFO Learning Opportunity on Thursday, April 21, 2016, from 12-1:30 p.m.
Nonprofit Roundtable: Communicating Financial Information to Nonfinancial People
Effective financial reporting is about more than making sure the numbers add up. It requires that financial information be communicated in a way that is meaningful and understandable to the audience. While board members and nonprofit leaders bring a variety of talents to an organization, they may not have extensive experience with financial and accounting matters.
This roundtable is a learning opportunity for individuals responsible for assisting people who may not have a financial background – board members, committees, program directors, and others – in understanding nonprofit and government financial reports and their underlying standards.
At the end of this session, you will be able to:
  • Distinguish the responsibilities of governance and management and other users of financial data within the organization
  • Recognize how to communicate accounting standards that are specific to nonprofits and governments
  • Give examples to aid others in the interpretation of nonprofit/government financial statements
  • Identify signs of financial stability and red flags, and discuss how best to communicate them
Who should attend
This session is designed for executive directors, CEOs, CFOs, board members, controllers, financial managers, treasurers, and other nonprofit decision makers.
Connie Lira, Senior Accountant, Nonprofit
