Monday, November 27, 2:20 – 3:35 p.m. Weaver and Cuozzo will address the number of threats currently facing not-for-profit organizations including cybersecurity and current examinations of IRS Tax Form 990. They will also review five areas in which not-for-profits are dealing with new accounting standards, and the flexible financial statement format intended to make the statements easier for stakeholders to understand.
  • Government Auditing Standards Update. Tuesday, November 28, 8:30 – 9:40 a.m. Cuozzo will review with not-for-profit financial management leaders the 2011 revision to the “Yellow Book” Standards. His presentation will include an in-depth discussion of Yellow Book CPE requirements and changes to the independence rules. Participants will leave this session with a greater understanding of the revised Standards.
