Date / Time: Recorded
Format: Webinar
Order:Qty: Select State:

Nonprofits of all types and sizes are entrusted by donors, members and other organizational supporters with fiduciary oversight over reserves and endowments for use in achieving their missions.

Ensuring the proper policies, management and governance oversight associated with these funds; typically the most significant and liquid asset of any nonprofit, is essential to stakeholder and public confidence as well as legal and regulatory compliance.

It is therefore key for nonprofit financial management professionals and those charged with governance over these funds to understand the rules and best practices associated with investment policies and reserves to protect their constituents, stakeholders and themselves.

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
