Armanino’s Nonprofit Symposium Returns to Discuss Navigating Risk in Today’s Dynamic Environment

Free Event Hosted in Los Angeles and San Francisco

SAN RAMON, Calif., May 09, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Armanino LLP, one of the top 25 largest accounting and business consulting firms in the U.S., today announced the return of its annual Nonprofit Symposium. The half-day forum will take place in Los Angeles on May 18 at the Montage Beverly Hills, and in San Francisco on May 23 at the Hyatt Regency. It will feature continuing professional education (CPE) credit sessions that help nonprofit leaders strategize solutions to overcome operational challenges unique to their sector and challenges emerging from new Washington policies.

On both dates, the symposium will kick off with a keynote address by Laura Gassner Otting, founder and chief catalyzing officer of Limitless Possibility. Her presentation, “May You Live in Interesting Times” will cover how nonprofit leaders can better prepare for a shifting political and regulatory climate where nonprofit resources are already stretched thin.

The California Association of Nonprofits (CalNonprofits) will join both events to present findings from a recent survey on the impact of political change. Results show a majority of nonprofits report significant changes in their organization since the 2016 election.

“With political change comes uncertainty in the regulatory and funding landscape.  It’s important that nonprofit finance leaders equip themselves with the best strategies to mitigate risk,” said Paul O’Grady, partner-in-charge of Armanino’s nonprofit practice. “The Nonprofit Symposium continues to prepare nonprofit leaders to protect their organizations in order to focus on their core mission-related goals.”

The symposium is made possible in part by sponsorships from Armanino partners including Intacct, Charity Compliance Solutions, Chase, TriNet, Bolton & Company, Nexonia, Modern HR, Seyfarth Shaw, Northern Trust and Officia Imaging.
