2022 MACPA Government & Not-For-Profit Conference

MACPA’s Government & Not For Profit Conference addresses the unique technical and professional challenges of the CPAs working in these sectors. This annual, one-day event puts a special emphasis on the skills and insight that CPAs can immediately implement.

GRF’s sessions at this year’s conference include the following topics:


Automation/Data Analytics

9:10 AM – 10:20 AM | Presented by Mark Tessar & Yevgeniy Sukhenko

Finance departments and auditors alike are now turning to artificial intelligence (AI), data analytics, and robotic process automation (RPA) to streamline tasks and improve reporting – digitally transforming their organizations for better decision-making and the flexibility to pivot when necessary. The benefits of these technologies are attractive, but which technology investments are appropriate for your organization and provide the biggest “bang for the buck”? Join GRF as we provide insights and best practices for technology selection, systems implementation and leveraging the most benefit from technology investments.


Nonprofit Cybersecurity & Related Reputation Risks

1:00 PM – 2:10 PM | Presented by Melissa Musser, Mac Lillard & Darren Hulem

Are the appropriate discussions around Cybersecurity and Information Technology being held at the board and/or audit committee level? Has your website domain been blacklisted without your knowledge? Are visitors not coming to your site because it’s flagged as unsafe? Are your donor lists being shared on the dark web? Learn the best practices for monitoring and protecting your organization’s most valuable asset: your reputation. Understanding your reputation risk goes way beyond just googling your company name. In this session, we will cover the many ways your online reputation can be compromised and offer recommended tools available for monitoring these risks. We will also discuss remediation steps for addressing any issues uncovered.


Indirect Rate Recovery 

1:00 PM – 2:10 PM | Presented by Paul Calabrese

This session will include a discussion regarding indirect rate strategies for cost recovery.


New Gifts in Kind Standards

1:00 PM – 2:10 PM | Presented by Ricardo Trujillo & Omid Mohebbi

Join GRF’s nonprofit audit experts Ricardo Trujillo, CPA, and Omid Mohebbi, CPA, for a comprehensive webinar on this critical new ASU affecting those nonprofits that receive contributed nonfinancial assets. Nonprofits should be fully prepared for the financial statement disclosure changes and the additional records they will need to keep in 2022. Participants will gain invaluable information about the tools they need to successfully implement this Accounting Standards Update and be ready for their next audit.
