Events for the month of February 2020
Understanding Financials for Committee Members
Thursday, February 20, 2020
6:30 PM - 9:30 PM
Finance Training
Facilitator: Non Profit Training

Committee or board members of not for profit organisations come to the table with a mix of skills and experiences which makes their contribution special. Many do not have an in-depth knowledge of accounting or a head for numbers, yet most committees are now aware of their individual responsibility to ensure the group is solvent and the importance of being able to read the financial reports.
Learning how to read and understand the facts and figures presented in financial reports will mean committee members become equipped with knowledge on which they can base major decisions when guiding their community group and help it to survive and thrive.

Learning Outcomes:

- Interpreting the financial reports including the balance sheet and profit and loss
- How to develop a budget for the financial year
- Calculating the organisation’s financial health
- How to link the strategic plan to the budget and financial reports
- Determining the appropriate level of equity for a not for profit
- Understanding the financial controls required to protect assets.
