Session 1, 11:00 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.: Remote Control: Establishing and Maintaining Effective Internal Controls in a “Stay at Home” Environment led by William Donahue, Aronson and Kimberly McKinnish, NBWA

Join us as Will and Kimberly discuss these challenges and learn how one association leader is finding solutions as nonprofits evolve in response to these unprecedented times.

Attendees will:

  • Understand the risks introduced by a remote workplace environment and its impact on internal controls
  • Learn to leverage information technology to strengthen internal controls
  • Identify ways for your internal controls to evolve so they are stronger than before and cannot be circumvented
  • Inspire nonprofit leaders to perform an updated risk assessment of their organization
  • Adopt best practices for communicating with, and involving, your Board of Directors in monitoring your organization in a remote environment

Session 2, 12:30 p.m. – 1:45 p.m.: Frauditing – Preventing and Detecting Fraud in your Association led by Greg Plotts, Aronson &  Julie Broadway, American Horse Council:

“Frauditing” —auditing for fraud and abuse—can greatly reduce your nonprofit’s exposure to risks and help you identify perpetrators and take action. However, conducting an effective fraudit means knowing where and how fraud is most likely to occur in organizations like yours. Greg and Julie will provide insights on data from the latest fraud and abuse study released by the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE), provide examples of best practices nonprofits use successfully to identify fraud and take action, and more.

Newest data, controls and strategies for “frauditing” your organization, including:

  • 2020 updated fraud statistics and case results
  • Tips to identify a perpetrator
  • Best practices for implementing anti-fraud programs and controls
  • Using data analytics to identify or investigate fraud
  • Taking effective action when fraud occurs
  • Recognizing the risk universe for your nonprofit
