AAFCPAs has been selected to present an educational workshop on Training Your Board to be Better Fiduciaries at the National Charter Schools Conference in Austin, Texas, June 17-20. This is a must-attend conference for charter school teachers, leaders, board members, and advocates, providing exceptional professional development programming and networking opportunities for over 4,500 charter school professionals from across the country.

Training Your Board to be Better Fiduciaries

AAFCPAs Partner John Buckley, CPA along with AAFCPAs’ client Sally Bachofer, Executive Director, City on a Hill Charter Public Schools (Boston and New Bedford, MA) will present a 60-minute, interactive workshop to explore best practices in boosting board performance and contribution. Charter Schools rely on their boards to keep them fiscally strong and viable, and School Business Officers must effectively communicate financial data to this diverse group of stakeholders. In this session, we will provide insight into how to inspire a deeper level of learning for board members. We will cover the key considerations in training your board so members are better positioned to: understand the financials; identify and track meaningful leading indicators; and ensure adequate control mechanisms.
AAFCPAs has significant experience successfully advising Charter Schools and Charter Management Organizations (CMOs) on a local and national level, and we are happy to share our expertise with the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools.
