AAFCPAs to Present Workshop on Anticipating Fraud for Charter Schools
Leaders in AAFCPAs’ Education Practice, John Buckley, CPA, CGMA, and Nichole Reilly, CPA, will present an educational webinar: Is Fraud Preventable? Safeguard Your Charter Public School’s Fiscal Operations in collaboration with the Massachusetts Charter Public School Association (MCPSA) on June 3rd, 2021. This session is open to board members, school leaders, and CFO/COOs.
Recent events of alleged fraud in charter public schools remind us we are all susceptible to risk. In this session, John and Nichole will help participants understand risk and the warning signs of fraud, review the most effective internal controls, and introduce the concept of an Enterprise Risk Management Program for your school. This session will include real life stories of fraud cases, including fraud that has occurred at charter public schools. We will look at internal controls that can be effective at small and large schools and discuss the usage of both preventative controls and detective controls. To conclude, we will discuss various types of Risk Management Programs schools can implement and look at an Enterprise Risk Management Program. As a Partner and head of AAFCPAs Risk Committee, John will discuss how he has implemented an enterprise risk management program at AAFCPAs.
When: Thursday, June 3, 2021 from 11:00am – 12:00pm.
