Oklahoma Conference on Nonprofit Law & Finance

Oklahoma Conference on Nonprofit Law & Finance

This two-day conference provides focused attention on core issues for both private foundations and charitable organizations including governance, UBIT, investment, and financial statements.

Conference sessions will cover new and developing legislation, legal compliance, charitable giving, financial oversight, and Oklahoma policy and advocacy, as well as new trends in cultural competency, cyber security and more.

The conference features local and regionally recognized experts from private foundations, public charities, law, finance and government to illuminate the latest legal, tax and governance issues affecting nonprofit organizations.

As the perfect overview for new entrants and seasoned practitioners in the field, this conference is designed for lawyers and CPAs who have nonprofit clients, as well as nonprofit executives looking to gain insight into legal and financial best practices. The setting allows for optimal networking among this growing sector.

The Oklahoma Conference on Nonprofit Law & Finance takes place every two years. The next conference will be in 2021.

  • Thanks to all of your staff for the training and experience you offer to raise the level of competence and confidence in the nonprofit sector. I've learned a great deal in your classes and hope to apply these lessons in the nonprofit sector.

  • "I had never been to a Center training before. So when I registered for the Public Speaking training, my colleagues said, 'You already do so much public speaking. What are you going to get out of it?" I was really impressed because we went through really thinking about building your presentation, and the packet sent home with us was really helpful. The workshop itself was just so full of information!"

  • We’re a brand new foundation starting from scratch. We’re learning a lot of things. I’m sitting in here with a class of people who’ve been doing this for a long time. So, we’re drinking from a fire hose and having a good time.

  • "One of the best things about the training is it breaks everything down into fundamentals. So, if you are a brand new person, just now starting, it gives you the basics for that. If you are experienced and have been working in the area before, you are growing your skills."

  • You don’t know what you don’t know, and I wanted to learn in the right environment with the Nonprofit Management Certification Program. I didn't want to have that oh gosh we've got a problem environment.

  • "I've taken several trainings at OKCNP since becoming a member -- Annual Fund Campaign, Funders Forum, Standards for Excellence, and The Partnership -- we've really taken advantage of our membership, because we want to professionalize our foundation so it has a forward-facing transparency for our donors."

  • Membership to OKCNP has been a great investment for our organization! Among my favorite membership perks include real relationships with nonprofit professionals both on the OKCNP staff and with other nonprofit organizations around the state. When you need advice, it’s comforting to know you’re not alone and to be connected with such a rich community of knowledgeable people.

  • Shared Services saved my professional sanity! We had been using a CPA for years that wasn’t able to provide the reporting required for grant applications and funding requests. Our Financial Statements were confusing and almost impossible to read, even for our Board Members that had backgrounds in Finance. The staff at Shared Services worked with me to rebuild our whole financial structure and now we are growing like never before. "

  • For me the relationships formed with other local ED’s and the speakers was the best part. Leaders' Circle gave me people I could relate to in their challenges and triumphs and someone I can reach out to in the future. Each course was very good and useful. It challenged me to keep my leadership development group going here at Ardmore Village. We all need encouragement to keep growing!

    Randy McFarland Executive Director at Ardmore Village
  • Organizations require both a clear board structure with deeply committed members if they are to truly prosper and be effective. Our board greatly appreciated our time with Jerry and OKCNP. It was quite eye opening and challenging.
