Minding the Business While Changing the World – Reporting and Fiduciary Responsibilities

Nonprofits strengthen our communities in countless ways – and their staff, board, and volunteers are often passionate about the cause. Sometimes there is much less enthusiasm for paying attention to board governance, legal fiduciary obligations, and reporting requirements. Charities ignore these important concepts at their own peril. If nonprofit leaders fail to take care of business properly, the entire organization can be jeopardized. This training will include a review of the basic requirements all charitable organizations have, along with easy-to-follow tips to responsibly protect an organization and its beneficiaries. Staff leaders, we invite you to bring your board members to this session!

This session, both live and the recording, has been approved for:

  • 1 Certified Animal Welfare Administrator continuing education credit 
  • 1 CFRE CE
  • 1 CE towards ACO CE requirements per Ch. 829 of the Texas Health and Safety Code by the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS)
