The course has a built-in self-assessment component that gives participants the ability to immediately apply their new knowledge against their organization’s capacity and leave the program with an action plan. If available, we ask you to please bring your organization’s Form 990 and audited financials in order to refer to them during the course. For those CPAs interested in CNAP, CBM is authorized to offer CPE (Continuing Professional Education) credit through the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to gain confidence in your skills and take your career to the next level!

WHO CAN BENEFIT: Nonprofit bookkeepers, staff accountants and any professional (including non-CPAs) charged with the financial management of a nonprofit organization including trade and membership associations.

ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS: Eligible applicants must have at least 18 months of experience in a financial position within a nonprofit organization and submit a letter of attestation from either a past or present employer to verify work experience. (Letters may be emailed to cnap@cbmcpa.com.) Participants who do not yet have 18 months of experience may still participate but will not be issued certificates of completion until they have reached that benchmark.
