Financial governance for NFP's.

1.00pm, Wednesday 26th April

Financial governance for NFP's.

Speaker: Rob Lockhart, Presenter-Westpac's Davidson Institute

Duration: 30-45 minutes

As demand for services increases and the available funding decreases it is vital that not-for-profit organisations ensure that their financial governance passes muster.

Many people involved in the not-for-profit sector became involved due to their passion or belief in a particular cause rather than because they possessed the skills for the role they have undertaken.  From a financial view point this can have significant ramifications for both the organisation and the individual.  This webinar highlights why financial governance is important and introduces essential financial concepts that will support people undertaking board or financial roles in this sector.

We’ll help you learn about:

  • why financial governance is important.
  • understanding the financial position of an organisation using financial statements.

 This webinar is ideal  for anyone:

  • involved, or considering getting involved, as a board member or in a financial management role with a not-for-profit organisation.
