Financials 201 – Lunch & Learn

November 21, 2018 @ 12:30 pm - 1:45 pm


You’ve got the nonprofit financial accountability basics down: you know what you need to report to your Board, and what the respective financial responsibilities of an Executive Director and Board members are. Financial statements generally make sense, and you can spot financial warning signs before they cause your organization too much trouble.

Sounds familiar? Sounds like you’re ready for Financials 201!

On November 21st, join SVP Waterloo Region, in partnership with BDO Canada, at Communitech for a lunch-and-learn workshop on nonprofit financial management. Led by BDO Canada Partner Tim Sothern, the workshop will focus on:

  • strategies for building budgets,
  • analysis of variances,
  • tips for effectively monitoring cash flows, and
  • operating a Finance and Audit committee.

Join us:
Wednesday, November 21st, 2018, from 12:30 pm – 1:45 pm.
Communitech (Roddenberry Room) – 151 Charles St. W., Kitchener

General admission – $10 (includes lunch)

SVP Partners and SVP Investee staff/board/volunteers receive complimentary admission.
