In August, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued an Accounting Standards Update that simplifies and improves how a not-for-profit organization classifies its net assets, as well as the information it presents in financial statements and notes about its liquidity, financial performance and cash flows.

  • Our 2017 conference committee was dedicated to identifying the most important topics, and securing the most knowledgeable presenters, to provide you with the best practices and a clearer understanding of what is expected of you - as a CPA working in the nonprofit sector.

    I hope you will join us in Tampa, Fort Lauderdale or On-line May 18-19 to explore a wide variety of cutting-edge issues including FASB reports; single audits from auditor and industry perspectives; revenue recognition; leases; 990T; UBIT and much more.

    Please take a moment to review our agenda, and make your plans to be part of the only FICPA conference dedicated entirely to the needs of CPAs working for not-for-profits. See you in May!
