Mastering Critical Numbers: A Business Accounting and Financials Workshop

Presented by New England Women's Leadership Institute - NEWLI

Presented by: Savvy Workshop, LLC - DEFUNCT

Mastering Critical Numbers: A Business Accounting and Financials Workshop

Gaining a solid understanding of business financial concepts and terminology is an important facet of small business ownership and management. You do not have to be an accountant to comprehend the significant financial concepts that are the foundation of your organization. As a business owner, or an employee with budget responsibilities, having a firm working knowledge of the fundamentals of business accounting is critical.

In this two-part, six-hour workshop, we will cover all aspects of corporate finance including ROI, cash flow, economic indicators, NPVV and converting a budget into accounts. We will then put those concepts to work with hands-on budget and financial exercises that will help you make more informed business decisions, analyze budgets with new focus and understand the true value of your business.

Understanding the New Federal Guidance on Grantmaking

Presented by: Council on Financial Assistance Reform

The federal government recently published its overhaul of federal grants policies and procedures and many of the changes should benefit charitable nonprofits, their work in communities on behalf of governments, and the nonprofit community as a whole.  Called a “game changer” by the National Council of Nonprofits, the new guidance will require federal agencies, and state and local governments using federal funds. to reimburse nonprofit contractors and grantees for reasonable indirect costs, sometimes called administrative or overhead expenses. The guidance also raises the single audit threshold, clarifies cost allocation rules, and makes significant reforms that should allow nonprofits to focus more on delivering services in their communities and spend less time and money on wasteful paperwork.

To help organizations that contract with governments better understand and take advantage of the new rules, the Office of Management and Budget is hosting a day-long webcast on Monday, January 27. The presentation, which will be recorded, will provide the first, comprehensive look at changes to administrative requirements, cost principles, and audit requirements that were included in the package of reforms. This should be a great opportunity to get detailed information directly from key officials and receive early insights into how the federal government will be interpreting new provisions designed to reduce burdens on nonprofits and others.

To attend the free webinar, sign up for the Mailing List. They will send you the link and time for the webinar.
