Do you get a sinking feeling in your stomach every time audit season comes along? It doesn’t have to be that way!
An audit is an essential part of running any enterprise, from the smallest endeavour off a kitchen table, to the largest corporations. Audits help your donors continue donating, and all stakeholders continue supporting your organization, confident that their money and efforts are being shepherded properly.
With the right preparation, an audit can be a validation of the great work you are already doing. Come to this workshop to learn how to make that happen.
Who should attend: Everyone who has a hand in the bookkeeping of the organization, which could include the Bookkeeper, Office Coordinator, or Executive Director.
