AAFCPAs to Present Educational Workshop for Aspiring Board Members on Fiduciary Responsibility & How to Read Nonprofit Financial Statements

AAFCPAs’ Partners Thomas Muldoon, CPA, CGMA and Matthew Troiano, CPA will present an educational workshop on Fiduciary Responsibility of the Board & How to Read Nonprofit Financial Statements to current and aspiring board members and nonprofit leaders serving the MetroWest Boston community. This workshop, scheduled for Friday, March 9th, is organized by the Foundation for MetroWest, an organization which serves as a convener and catalyst, coordinating resources across communities and among nonprofits to build collaboration, foster shared learning, and reduce redundancies.
Financial statements tell the organization’s story from a financial perspective and can be used as a tool to plan for the future. Understanding an organization’s financial statements is critical in order to meet your fiduciary responsibility as a board member and for management to effectively run the nonprofit organization.
In this session, Tom and Matt will provide aspiring board members and nonprofit leaders with an understanding of:

  • the fiduciary responsibilities of the board;
  • what the financial statement components mean and how to interpret them;
  • actionable guidance on the key benchmarks for targeting and tracking; and
  • how to measure your success and benchmark against goals.

Date: Friday, March 9, 2018
Time: 9:00-10:30 AM
Location: Whitney Place, Three Vision Drive, Route 9 West, Natick, MA 01760
