We believe that Shiawassee nonprofits should have access, locally, to experts in nonprofit management, and we bring in presenters to our community for free educational programs. If you’d like to participate and are not already a member of our Shiawassee NonProfit Capacity Building program, then please email Yvette Collard at: [email protected] or call 989-725-1621.
2019 Workshop Schedule*
The more you understand about embezzlement, the easier it is to recognize the signs and take steps to keep your company’s financial assets secure. Treasurers, Finance Committee members, Board Members, Executive Directors and Bookkeepers will all gain critical information about managing your nonprofits financial resources and futures.
A Board’s primary responsibility is protecting the assets of the organization and the most common embezzlement is by employees or internal staff. Come learn how to spot signs of embezzlement or misuse of funds, how to protect your business, steps you should take and how to get the most out of your audit.
In this session we will discuss:
1. Raising the awareness that embezzlement does happen
2. Encouraging leaders to give high priority to instituting safeguards against embezzlement
3. Debunking the myth that having an audit fixes the problem
4. Providing some tools/structure for participants to employ back at their shop to enhance safeguards.
Note: to be considered for 2020 grants, attendance at this workshop is a requirement.
Dinner is included.

For Executive Directors there are “standing” bi-monthly meetings, meeting on the 2nd Tuesday of every other month (with lunch included and served at noon) for networking and support from 12:00-2:30PM (*local location of each event will be noted on the registration webpage). This opportunity will help you build your capabilities through peer learning and networking relationships.
