WORKSHOP CALENDAR

April 28 (Tuesday)  9:30am—12pm
Nonprofit “Sticky Issues” Clinic: Financial Management & Reporting
You have questions, we have answers. Bring your most troubling, bothersome, contentious or annoying accounting, financial management or reporting questions to this first-of-its-kind workshop for suggestions or solutions. CPA Laurence Scot, author of The Simplified Guide to Not-For-Profit Accounting, Formation and Reporting, brings his 25 plus years of servicing and lecturing the nonprofit community to provide answers to these gnawing and frustrating issues. In the first half of the workshop he will cover two important areas that affect many nonprofits: 1) Board of directors/trustees legal, ethical and fiduciary responsibilities (with reference to the NYS Nonprofit Revitalization Act of 2013), and 2) properly classifying service providers as either employees or independent contractors. The second half of the workshop will be an open Q&A session where he will answer in clear and uncomplicated terms any “sticky issues” you have in the areas of accounting, financial management or reporting.

May 7 (Thursday)  9:30—11:30am
Writing for Nonprofit Professionals
This workshop on grammar, style, and clear communication is designed to help participants improve their writing, avoid common errors, and move their organizations toward using a standard style guide. The workshop includes a Top 10 list of blunders that many writers make (such as the misuse of that versus which and excessive capitalization) and addresses ways of editing one’s own work for reader-friendly, persuasive communication. The workshop will be led by Barbara Kancelbaum who has worked for more than 20 years as a writer, editor, and public relations consultant for a variety of nonprofit organizations. Please note: This is not a basic grammar class; it assumes attendees have a good command of grammar and writing principles. Registrants are welcome to submit a grammar/style question in advance to cferber@npccny.org.

May 12 (Tuesday)  9:30am—12pm
Technology Planning for Action
Nonprofits face all sorts of challenges around technology. Leaders wonder if the technologies they are using are right for their organization or, if they are the right technologies, whether they’re using them effectively. How can nonprofit leaders know whether their challenges can be addressed through the adoption of new technology, better use of existing technology, or if their challenges are even technology-related at all? This activity-driven workshop from RoundTable Technology will lead attendees through an in-depth strategic planning process, offering practical methods for identifying technology-related challenges and understanding the impact of these challenges on their communities. Tools will be provided for assessing and prioritizing potential solutions, and, finally, developing meaningful plans toward implementing solutions. It is recommended that two people from an organization who represent different organizational perspectives attend.

May 13 (Wednesday) 9:30—11:30am
