Understanding financial statements, knowing where the money goes, and measuring financial health are key concerns for all arts organization leaders—staff, board members, and volunteers. This workshop will provide a guide to understanding what you and your board need to know and to training your board and staff to focus on the things that matter most. We will debunk myths, translate accounting terms, and show you that it’s easier than you think to keep an eye on the bottom line.


Alexandra Urbanowski, SVCREATES’ Director of Strategic Initiatives, has over twenty-five years of nonprofit leadership experience, including financial management roles at arts and cultural organizations both large and small.  She regularly advises nonprofits on fiscal management issues through her consulting firm, Opus Advisors.

Dan Moors, CPA, a partner at Armanino, has been in public accounting since 1993. Dan provides expertise in several areas, including audits of nonprofit organizations, cost-effective management recommendations using his vast experience and understanding of “best practices” to help clients strengthen their internal controls and streamline their accounting systems, and delivering clear and understandable financial statement audit presentations to audit committees, finance committees, and boards of directors.

Five workshop attendees will win a copy of Andy Robinson’s book The Easier Than You Think Guide to Nonprofit Finances from the “Emerson Church Gold Standard in Books for Your Board” series.
