Foundational Basics: Best Practices in Legal, Accounting and HR

Wednesday, July 13, 2016

8:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m., Pre-registration at 8:15 a.m.

Program Overview

Experts in their field will present “Best Practices” for the important foundational areas of your nonprofit: Human Resources, Accounting, and Legal. This session will include information on the Dept. of Labor overtime rule changes that go into effect on December 1, 2016.  

Accounting will focus on Internal control best practices for small- to mid-size non-profit organizations. As many organizations are stretched administratively, properly segregating duties while maintaining efficiency is important to safeguarding assets and maintaining the integrity of financial information.

Legal advice for nonprofit organizations, like other corporations, is needed to understand the complex web of overlapping state and federal regulations by which they are governed. This section Will give nonprofit leaders an overview of the most common legal issues and questions our 501(c)(3) organizations face, including governance, compliance, employment, intellectual property, using volunteers.

Human Resources are often the most valuable asset of a nonprofit agency so it is important to have good policies and procedures in this area. Topics covered will include best practices in hiring and interviewing, critical policies, the new overtime rules, what goes in a personnel file, required documentation and other employee relations issues.
