People, Processes and Technology, the Three-Legged Stool: AAFCPAs to Lead MNN Educational Workshop

AAFCPAs’ Partner Janice O’Reilly, CPA, CGMA and Manager Dawn Pantano, CPA, CITP will present a timely, educational workshop at the Massachusetts Nonprofit Network’s 2018 Annual Conference in Framingham, MA on October 10th on the topic of right-sizing the modern finance function.

Nonprofit finance departments are often juggling the day-to-day accounting and bookkeeping responsibilities alongside more complex and time consuming tasks, such as: HR-related activities; maintaining compliance; optimizing revenue; mergers & collaborations; data & cyber security; managing the IT investment decision-making process; business process improvements; implementing new accounting standards; and staying ahead of industry benchmarks. This diversity requires constant evaluation of situational or cyclical resource needs, workforce aptitudes & synergies, as well as consideration of technological and outsourced options, and economic and funding changes.

People, Processes, and IT Systems are a three-legged stool, that when optimized in an interconnected ongoing effort, can effectively address evolving organizational needs. In this interactive workshop, Janice and Dawn will share practical best practices proven to improve business performance, drive revenue, control costs, and reduce risk.  Learn more about this session to be presented live at one of the largest gatherings of nonprofit professionals in the state. >>
