Transforming Ideas Into Action: Best Takeaways for Real-Life Results (Jun 20, 2018 02:30 PM)
Not-for-profit organizations have to abide by several accounting and reporting requirements that are unique to their industry. This workshop will take a fresh look at NFP accounting and reporting requirements, provide a few simple "tricks of the trade" and give participants an overview of several basic/fundamental accounting and financial reporting items that are prevalent within the not-for-profit industry. Topics covered will include accounting for contributions, endowments, net assets, and various other accounting and financial reporting topics. This workshop is ideal for those who are new to the not-for-profit industry, as well as a refresher for more experienced individuals.
Given the changes in the Uniform Guidance, particularly related to procurement, this workshop is geared to helping participants with practical implementation strategies in understanding adoption (and survival) techniques in both implementing and auditing the new standards.
Do you find yourself sleuthing around Microsoft Excel, wanting to uncover the analytics features it provides and wishing you knew more? Attendees will learn about new and existing analytics features within Excel. Excel features can make even the most rote daily tasks more efficient. Other features, such as Excel charts and reports, can assist you in becoming more strategic in your role.
Attendees will leave with practical examples of how to use these features as well as resources for future, self-guided learning. The workshop is recommended for those with at least a foundational level of competency related to Excel and its capabilities. Attendees will:
• Identify uses for Office 365, Office’s subscription service that provides ongoing new value and high impact for your work and business.
• Apply data to examples of Excel analytics fundamentals, including lookup formulas and PivotTables.
• Compare chart types to help visualize data.
• Use the one-click forecasting feature to make predictions on data.
• Use Power Query, a tool used for automated, repeatable importing and cleaning up substantial amounts of data in Excel. Data can come from a wide variety of sources including SQL, CSV, and web pages.
• Use Power Pivot, a tool used when working with large (1M+ rows) data sets within Excel.
Many institution's must engage in the process of negotiating federal indirect rates. Non-profits face unique challenges in preparing, submitting and negotiating indirect rates. As we go through this process, many of us often wonder if we've done everything we can do within the constraints of federal regulations in order to maximize our institution's negotiated indirect rate and resulting indirect cost recovery. In this workshop, we will discuss strategies that may be employed to maximize indirect cost recovery, both in the preparation of your indirect rate proposal as well as during the subsequent rate negotiation and budgeting of indirect costs on grants and contracts.
Focusing on the three foundational components of Operational Excellence, "effective teams, integrated technology systems, and efficient workflow”this session will leave participants with a renewed vision of what it means to operate at the highest levels to support the achievement of outcomes. Key concepts will include:
-Maximizing staff capacity in the finance function
-Leveraging technology to increase efficiency,
-Automating workflow each step of the way.
This workshop provides a deep dive on this accounting topic for those that are new to NFPS or experienced CPAs that need a refresher. The workshop will focus on:
- Overview of UPMIFA, including key concepts in the uniform act and common differences as implemented in state law
- GAAP requirements for accounting and financial reporting for endowments, including what will change and what will not under ASU 2016-14
- Examples of options for reporting endowment balances and activity in the financials

Many not-for-profit organizations rely on split-interest agreements, also known as planned giving, to support their long-term missions. Would you know a split interest agreement if you saw it? Would you know how to account for it? This workshop will cover accounting for the various types of split interest agreements, including charitable lead trusts, charitable gift annuities, pooled income funds, and gifts of real estate with a retained interest. Through various examples of these types of gifts, we will cover the GAAP requirements for initial recognition (including what assumptions and estimates to use), subsequent re-measurement, and financial statement presentation and disclosure. We will explore best practices for controls surrounding identifying, tracking, and recording such agreements.
Purpose can be powerful, palatable, and transformative if we understand its true meaning on a multitude of levels -- individual, collective, systemic -- and how to activate it in a unified manner. Hear from PwC’s Chief Purpose Officer about how a purpose mindset transcends generations, supports talent development and workplace engagement while creating shared value.
This session will provide the status of the GAO's update to Government Auditing Standards.
Given increased accountability to constituents, donors and regulators for accuracy and integrity of business operations, heightened expectations of boards for transparency and effectiveness, and greater media coverage of lapses in good governance, strong board performance is essential. When done right, governance activities of boards can not only provide needed oversight, but can contribute in meaningful ways to organizational success - and mission achievement. In this presentation, we will address key governance principles for Boards in the not-for-profit sector, focusing on modes of governance, responsibilities of the board and of individual trustees, characteristics of high performing boards and current governance issues and associated best practices.
The presentation will be based on Grant Thornton's "Not-for-Profit Board Guidebook", which covers governance best practices, as well as the issues trustees face as they do their work.
