Great Governance, Financial Health and Your Mission: Perfect Harmony or Perfect Storm?

Presented by: Melanie Lockwood Herman

Nonprofit leaders face extraordinary scrutiny when it comes to where money for mission comes from and how it’s spent. This scrutiny necessitates thoughtful financial management and fiscal oversight. Your board members may be donors of substantial time and money and passionate about your mission, but are they equally engaged when it comes to fiscal oversight? What role does the staff play in ensuring good fiscal health to advance the organization’s mission?

Melanie will highlight the top finance risks facing nonprofit leaders in 2014 and share practical examples to explain how and why great governance and informed fiscal oversight are a must if your mission truly matters.
