Scholarships for Nonprofit Staff to Attend
27th Annual Nonprofit Finance and Accounting Symposium
The GWSCPA Educational Foundation is pleased to announce the availability of a limited number of scholarships for our 27th Annual Nonprofit Finance and Accounting Symposium.
The relevance of the nonprofit sector continues to grow, with approximately 1.5 million nonprofits operating in the US, now employing 10% of our workforce. Finance and accounting professionals in these organizations are stewards of the public trust, face great challenges and have even more responsibility placed squarely on their shoulders than ever before. Nonprofits are currently struggling to maintain their funding and many have been cutting back on education at a time when their staff needs even more support.
The Symposium has shown itself to be the one “must attend” continuing education event for these professionals each year, providing access to leading national experts, their DC based regulators and peers from around the country. For those that would otherwise be left behind this year, the GWSCPA Educational Foundation is offering a small number of scholarship registrations worth $995 each for staff of exempt organizations with a budget of $ 3,000,000 or less.
The program spans 2.5 days and is a unique opportunity for accounting and finance staff-often alone in their organizations- to connect with more than 700 peers, stay current on latest regulatory compliance issues and management trends and to further hone and refresh their technical skills.
Interested nonprofit professionals should send an inquiry to Kari Bedell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Details about the program can be found at www.gwscpa.org
With more than 3,500 members, the Greater Washington Society of CPAs is the voice of the Washington area’s accounting professionals.
