FAR Webinar: Reassure your Organization’s Stakeholders with a Board Governance

Health Check

Tuesday, February 22, 2022 | 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST | Location: Zoom Webinar (Group Internet Based) 

Description: With their stakeholders expecting strong fiscal responsibility, nonprofits and associations are focused on following financial best practices and transparency around the financial health of the organization. Ideally, this process should also include appropriate checks and balances that arise from effective board governance. Is your leadership confident in your board of directors’ structure and performance to support the organization through challenges such as leadership transition, financial hardship, and a challenging regulatory and compliance environment?

A governance health check provides organizations with an objective assessment of the current board to identify strengths, weaknesses, risks, and opportunities, and delivers real-world recommendations based on industry best practices. Join GRF’s Risk & Advisory Services team to learn how board health checks yield top performing organizations that can withstand current challenges and emerging risks.

Presenters: Melissa Musser, CPA, CITP, CISA , Partner and Director, Risk & Advisory Services | Mac Lillard, CPA, CFE, CISA, CRISC, CITP, Audit Manager, Risk & Advisory Services | Amy Wares | Supervisor, Risk & Advisory Services.
