Oversight and management of financial resources is a major concern for all non-profit organizations, regardless of whether they are a small, all-volunteer group or large national association.

On Thurs., Jan. 10 from 8:15-10:15 a.m., Marvin and Company, P.C. Director Frank Venezia, CPA and Krieger Solutions, LLC President and Founder Alan Krieger, will host a two-hour interactive workshop titled, “Financial Governance of Non-Profits: A Board Perspective” at Manfred Learning Center, 920 Albany Shaker Rd., Latham.

Register online by visiting or call Pam Fenoff at Krieger Solutions, (518) 895-2939. The fee, which is $25 before 12/28 and $30 after that, covers handout materials and light refreshments.  Space is limited.

“This workshop will provide easy-to-understand examples and suggestions that can be readily implemented in any organization,” said Venezia, explaining that board members and leaders of non-profit agencies are often unfamiliar with their financial management systems. “Participants will leave with a clearer idea of the board’s role in fiscal management, how to read financial reports and how to increase accountability and oversight.”

Among other topics, attendees will learn:

-The board’s specific responsibilities in fiscal management
-The purpose and goals of a fiscal management system
--Steps a board can take to effectively create accountability and oversight
What to look for when reviewing financial reports
-How to minimize risk of fraud or financial mismanagement
-The board’s interaction with internal and external auditors

Venezia has 35 years of public accounting experience and oversees Marvin and Company’s accounting and auditing services. He currently supervises audits and provides management advisory and other services for various not-for-profit organizations, fire districts and employee benefit plans.

Krieger is a former executive director of two non-profit organizations. His company provides bookkeeping and financial management consulting, leadership training and organizational development services to non-profit agencies across the state.
