Workshop to brief non-profit boards on finances

The Evanston Community Foundation is sponsoring a workshop this month to brief board members of non-profit groups on how to provide financial oversight for the organizations they serve.

Whether of not they have financial backgrounds, board members and the board as a whole have an important role in providing financial oversight and protecting the assets of the organization.

The workshop, co-sponsored by the Illinois Certified Public Accountants Society will be held from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 25, in the Community Room of the Evanston Public Library, 1703 Orrington Ave.

Participants will learn the basics of financial responsibilities — what a board member needs to know and be aware of to ensure a not-for-profit’s financial health.

The workshop is geared towards board members; individuals considering joining a board; executive directors and other staff members working with boards on financial management; or teams of staff and board members representing not-for-profit organizations.

The workshop will be led by a John E. Adams, CPA, chief financial officer of Rainbow PUSH Coalition. The cost is $30 per person. Light refreshments will be served. To register visit the foundation website or call 847-492-0990.
