Event Category 

See registration website for tiered pricing $45-$75

We are joining forces with the Montana Nonprofit Association to provide a two-part course to help board members better understand nonprofit finance. This course is for board members who wish to better serve their mission and fiduciary obligations. Whether you are a first-time board member or seasoned treasurer, this two-part series offers clarity and guidance on how to focus on what matters. 

Part 1 is a Nonprofit Financial Leadership Overview. This session will enable participants to: 

  • Explain nonprofit finance basics to their fellow board members 
  • Identify elements of fiscally healthy and unhealthy organizations 
  • Recognize board level responsibilities in maintaining a strong financial position

Part 2 is Effective Structures for Fiscal Oversight to be presented on April 27. This second session will prepare participants to: 

  • Identify primary aims of a strong finance committee 
  • Develop better communication methods between staff, finance committee members, and the general board 
  • Recognize how to provide the right level of information for boards to feel confident in navigating financial conversations 

This training aligns with INA’s beliefs that boards operate at a high level, that financial health and stability can enhance mission impact, and with a preference towards full cost accounting systems. All sessions will be recorded and available for registered attendees to access, along with all session resources, for six months after the event.
