The Illinois CPA Society's (ICPAS) Not-for-Profit Committee sponsors a series of Roundtables to provide opportunities for financial professionals who are involved with nonprofit organizations, both on the public accounting and organization sides, to network, learn and share information. Rose Doherty is the chairperson of the Not-for-Profit Roundtable Subcommittee.
The next ICPAS Not-for-Profit Roundtable is scheduled for November 4, 2010, when Thomas Brean, CPA will be presenting and facilitating a discussion on why the public is interested in evaluating nonprofit organizations, who the “watchdogs” are and what they do, what the potential benefits and risks are to your organization, and what you can do to minimize those risks.
For the first half of each Roundtable session, participants share and discuss a variety of issues affecting the nonprofit industry in an open forum. Participants are encouraged to bring burning questions, current challenges, and best practices for discussion. In the second half of the aforementioned gathering, participants will discuss the groups that are watching and evaluating charities and other nonprofit organizations.
The November 4 program runs from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. at the ICPAS office at 550 West Jackson Boulevard, Suite 900 in Chicago, and is free of charge. To register call ICPAS at 800-993-0393. You do not need to be an ICPAS member to attend.
Mark your calendars for the following upcoming Roundtables as well: January 27, 2011 and March 10, 2011. The topic for the January 27 Roundtable will be Tax and Regulatory Compliance Filing. The March topic will be announced closer to the date.
