Board Member’s Guide to Nonprofit Governance during COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has led to extraordinary challenges for nonprofit organizations and their leaders. While focusing on shrinking funding to continue their important missions, nonprofits must also grapple with the impact of remote work which has changed the nature of their operations and introduced new complexities for internal controls. In their roles as advisors, board members have a fiduciary duty to support overwhelmed nonprofit staff through these challenging times. Armed with the right knowledge, board members can also help the organization seize opportunities for digital transformation that will provide benefits well into the future.

Join GRF CPAs and Advisors’ nonprofit audit experts for an interactive discussion exploring the key financial challenges faced by nonprofit organizations during the pandemic and the critical lessons learned. The presenters will examine accounting and internal controls, the annual audit process, general operations as well as best practices to ensure effective governance continues at the organization.

The presenters for this webinar are both current board members of nonprofit organizations and bring both the auditor’s and board member’s perspectives to this important and timely discussion. Be sure to bring your questions!
