AAFCPAs will happily present educational workshops on two important topics at the Providers’ Council 44nd Annual Convention & Expo in Boston, MA on October 7th.
Anticipate the Fraudster
Auditors identify weaknesses in internal control procedures and make recommendations to management for enhanced controls to mitigate the opportunity for fraud. However, combatting fraud requires more than just an understanding of internal controls. To effectively safeguard your organization, your management and board must learn how to think like a fraudster. And a fraudster is thinking “Where are the cracks that would enable me to succeed undetected.” The leaders of AAFCPAs Human & Social Services Practice, Jeff Cicolini, CPA, CGMA and Tom Muldoon, CPA, CGMA, will share their expertise over a 90-minute, educational and technical assistance training session to help attendees recognize cracks in their internal control environment, design better internal controls that account for the latest technologies, and be better positioned to combat devious financial schemes.
Continuous Improvement of the Finance Function
The most thriving nonprofits are those that have a continuous improvement culture. Continuous improvement ensures systems and processes scale with growth; systems integration and integrity is maintained or improved; highly-manual processes, and lengthy/overburdened close cycles are eliminated; and meaningful data is available on-demand. AAFCPAs Joyce Ripianzi, CPA and Robyn Leet share approaches to reduce costs, create efficiencies, and/or achieve more effective internal control over your finance function.
