September 27 | 12:00PM - 2:00PM EST | $20.00 per person | Teleconference

There is an ever-increasing focus on nonprofits' finances, compensation of nonprofit executives, and financial dealings between boards and nonprofit agencies. The IRS, state government agencies, funders, donors, and the public are looking very closely at nonprofits's finances. Take part in this teleconference to learn what board members and key staff members should know in this area.
• Does your organization have a Conflict of Interest Policy? Is it followed? What should it contain? What are the risks for failure to disclose and adequately address conflicts of interest?
• What is an Excess Benefit Transaction, and how can your organization avoid it? How can you train your board to address potential pitfalls in this area, and what are the risks of failing to do so?
• What constitutes Excess Compensation for senior staff? What steps should your organization take to establish reasonable compensation? What creates a "rebuttable presumption" of reasonableness? What are the liabilities for failing to meet the IRS guidelines for compensation?
