With nonprofit organizations, there’s no margin for error when it comes to financial processes, budgeting, tax compliance, or strategic planning. Finance professionals must be in the know about new regulations and industry best practices, or else risk fraud, embezzlement, legal prosecution or fines, loss of your tax-exempt status, declining membership, or even bankruptcy.

That’s why it’s critical for your financial team to understand the issues and opportunities having the greatest impact on tax-exempt organizations today.

Now, you can learn it all… in just two days of training and networking! The annual Nonprofit Finance Summit is back, giving your nonprofit’s finance team a chance to learn from industry experts about what changes are coming down the pipeline and which strategies can help you excel.

This comprehensive two and a half-day training summit brings you together with nonprofit finance and operations executives, as well as with top experts ready to share today’s best success strategies in 10 key aspects of association and nonprofit financial management. Plus, the entire summit is structured to provide many opportunities to network, share ideas and collaborate with your peers—and with the speakers themselves.


As an experienced grantee, you know that the Uniform Guidance changed everything from the way you apply for grants to how you manage your funding. You’ve adjusted – you’ve been trained on these changes and made the necessary modifications to protect your funding – now it’s time to dig deeper. Perfect your internal controls and hone in on the specific and sometimes complicated aspects of the rules that govern your federal funding.

Join us in Washington DC, to learn from powerhouse sessions delivered by knowledgeable compliance experts in the grants, accounting and legal communities while networking with other skilled grants and finance professionals facing similar challenges. You’ll walk away from this advanced training with a clearer understanding of how to stay in compliance and protect your funding.
