Association Finance - Executive / Board Reporting
Presenters: Julie Hart, CFO by design

Basic financial reports don't always tell the full picture. We'll put your company's numbers into context, gather meaningful information, and put it all into a concise and understandable format for your reporting audience.

We will help you to really understand your financial statements, what questions you should be asking of your finance/accounting team and what areas of the financial statements require the most attention.

What does your annual audit cover and – more importantly — what it does not covered?

This session is geared to help give you confidence and understanding around the financial operations of your Association. . . .
