New Nonprofits Boot Camp: Using Legal and Tax Best Practices to Propel Results and Fulfill Your Mission (Webinar)
On April 5, join Nick Porto, senior manager, and Ari Solotoff, of Bernstein Shur, for a webinar specifically designed for new nonprofits and tax-exempt organizations. The presentation will cover a “holistic” view of the legal and tax best practices that lie at the heart of strong nonprofit performance. The webinar is hosted by the Maine Association of Nonprofits.
With a special focus on developing habits of governance, financial management, and program planning, the presenters will assist participants in identifying the monthly, quarterly, and yearly legal and tax practices that support positive operating results and engaged boards. This training will also explore key issues that new exempt organizations face when preparing the Form 990 tax return. From advocacy efforts to grantmaking activities to managing contributions, participants will reverse-engineer the Form 990 into a series of legal and tax milestones that can be implemented to support sustainable and strong operating results over time.

Now On Demand: Current Expected Credit Loss Update
The Current Expected Credit Loss standard (Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-13) or intimately known as CECL, has been a hot topic in the banking industry since the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s first CECL exposure draft in 2012. The CECL standard was issued in 2016 and we have created a presentation to address the challenges and questions surrounding implementation of the new standard as it relates to the allowance for loan losses.
Nickolas Ireland, Lead of our CECL Task Force, presents an update of the CECL standard, including an overview of the major provisions, an example calculation, and an implementation timeline in this on demand webinar. Click here to learn more and to register.
