In the field of accounting, the more things change, the less they stay the same. Not-for-profit accounting is no exception to this rule. Accordingly, this seminar reviews recent and proposed revisions to Part III – Accounting Standards for Not-for-Profit Organizations (ASNFPO), where participants will receive an overview of changes to ASNFPO, followed by a discussion of major projects and their impact on NFPOs. In addition, participants will receive practical guidance on selected accounting matters informed by practice advisory and/or practice inspection issues. Finally, the seminar introduces relevant performance measures and matters of importance to board members.

The seminar will appeal greatly to professionals involved in the preparation and analysis of financial statements using ASNFPO, practitioners who provide assurance on these financial statements, and CPAs who volunteer on NFPO boards.
