Sometimes it may feel like your day-to-day operation is a constant struggle because you lack the tools needed to grow and sustain your organization. This workshop will dig deep into the specific needs of nonprofit financial professionals, from an update on how the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will impact nonprofits, to any other new and likely regulations you’ll have to comply with. Plus, we’ll give you a great foundation for streamlining your processes and internal controls to encourage the growth and development of a perennial organization.

Today's Cyber World: Security Considerations for NFPs

Holly Boullion, CISM • Principal – Traina & Associates • A CapinCrouse Company • Baton Rouge, LA

Insufficient resources, inadequate budgeting and a lack of understanding of current cyber threats may leave some not-for-profit organizations vulnerable to breaches, ransomware and other areas of risk. In addition, the difference between an organization’s IT needs and information security needs may not be well understood or properly supported. In this session, we’ll discuss current cybersecurity issues, with an emphasis on how not-for-profits can improve in the area of information security.

Learning objectives include:

  • Identifying the most critical cyber risks today and control considerations
  • Discuss various technologies such as WiFi systems, cloud computing and the Internet of Things
  • Review planning measures such as incident response planning and cyber risk insurance
12:15 – 1:05 pm Lunch
1:05 – 2:35 pm

What is the IRS Up To? Form 990 & Beyond

Dave Moja, CPA • CapinCrouse LLP • Atlanta, GA

Form 990 continues to evolve. Congress is looking at requiring e-Filing for all Form 990-series returns. In addition, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act has resulted in numerous questions – and very few answers to date – with respect to several of the provisions included that affect exempt organizations. Beyond that, we've had changes to priority guidance, several verbal clarifications of issues by IRS staff, and a few new NFP rulings in 2018. In this session we'll unpack the new rules, survey interpretations and regulations so far, give an update on what we are hearing, and list ways organizations should plan for the future.

2:35 – 2:50 pm Break
2:50 – 3:40 pm

Statewide Agreed-Upon Procedures: Updated

Bradley Cryer, CPA • Louisiana Legislative Auditor • Baton Rouge, LA

This class will provide an overview of recent changes made to the statewide agreed-upon procedures, an explanation of the reasons for the changes, and a discussion of implementation challenges.

3:40 – 4:30 pm

Yellow Book Exposure Draft

J. Michael Inzina, CPA, CGFM, CGMA • Altec, Inc. • Monroe, LA

Mike will review the major changes included in the 2017 exposure draft and the impact those changes will have on audits under Government Auditing Standards. This session will highlight changes in CPE requirements, safeguards available to mitigate threats to independence, as well as other matters practitioners will need to prepare for.
