Stakeholders, donors, competitors, and naysayers use both the Program Service Accomplishments Part's disclosures and the filer's responses to Part VI's "Governance" inquiries to assess the organization's credibility and have a sense of management's capacity. Part III not only details Program Services' output with great specificity, but also updates the Form's readers both as to the filer's largest arenas of activities and how conducted activities have changed. And Part VI, the infamous "Governance Part," provides information as to the composition of those "legally in charge," as well as how both the Board of Directors/Trustees and its delegated officials employ policies in favor of maintaining internal controls. Preparers need to appreciate the importance of these two key parts and ensure that filers put their "best foot forward" properly here.

Surgent's Enterprise Risk Management Concepts and Strategy for Small and Medium-Sized Companies

-

Virtual

4.00 Credits

Member Price: $159

2020 taught us that major risks can come at us from any direction and with barely a warning. All organizations operate in a risk environment, but all too often, they either don't realize it or they don't develop a strategy to deal with the risks. In this session, we will explore how risks work in both for-profit and not-for-profit organizations and how they can develop a strategy to identify, evaluate, and mitigate those risks. This program will not teach how to eliminate risks, but how to strategize how to reduce their total effect. We will liberally use case studies of both for-profit and not-for-profit companies to bridge the gap between concept and actual implementation. In each area we will explore what our experiences of the pandemic have taught us about this part of risk management.
