Member | Board Bites: Board Finances

To further your knowledge of nonprofit board service, GCN Consulting is proud to launch Board Bites for 2021: regular, one-hour workshops concerning nonprofit board governance issues, designed for board members and the staff who work with them, and all free for GCN members.

This month’s topic: Board Finances
Learn to read a nonprofit financial statement, navigate the budgeting process, understand IRS requirements for 990s and audits, and what you should be looking for in financial statements at every meeting (or at least quarterly) in this look at all things financial for nonprofit boards. If nonprofit finances leave you dizzy or deflated, join us to hear about your fiduciary role and its importance to your work as a board member.

For years, GCN consultants have been providing board training, facilitated retreats, and annual board development plans for the simple reason that nonprofits are often too busy doing the mission work to devote the resources required to manage their board. That’s why, in this time of changing expectations, we’re launching the Board Bites series: So you can be the rock star that every organization needs – governing, raising money, and helping achieve the mission – without costing them extra time or effort.

Covering a different topic every month, we will maintain a focus on board roles and responsibilities before taking a deeper dive into one or more related issues (see the schedule below) through a facilitated discussion. Bring your questions, comments, and ideas, and be ready to share and learn from each other.
