Focus on Risk Management and Finance Topics for Nonprofits
The conference kicks-off with a full day of risk management and finance sessions suitable for leaders with little to substantial experience and responsibilities in these areas.

Intensive sessions that will be offered during the day include the Center’s popular, annual Insurance Boot Camp, Risk Management 101, Advanced Topics in Risk Management, Fraud Prevention and Internal Controls, Crisis Management, Nonprofit Accounting Basics, and Financial Risk Management. After the end of long, but rewarding day of learning, we will gather at the Convention Center to celebrate the opening of the conference.
