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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • It has been extremely rewarding working with and becoming a part of the Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits. As a business associate, we have had the privilege of working with several nonprofits referred to us by OKCNP. Along with our membership, we have access to Coffee Connection, which helps us develop further relationships with potential clients and with OKCNP. Coffee Connection is a great way to get you the exposure your business needs, should you enjoy working with nonprofits.

  • “Through the Shared Financial Services we are able to have services of a CPA to help us manage our federal grants because we do not have enough money in our budget for a full time accountant, so partnering with OKCNP allows us to have the best of both worlds -- to have an accountant to meet our needs, and also to free my time up to do more things."

  • 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."

  • "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!"

  • OKCNP provides excellent, world-class training opportunities, and recently provided excellent strategic planning assistance to us, all with a significant member discount. The Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits is a great resource!

  • I cannot begin to express the insight and knowledge I gained from the OKCNP’s Leaders Circle. Lead by expert advisers, the value I gained came from the cross-feed of knowledge, experience, and real situations from each of the leaders in our group. This was a small intimate setting that allowed for relationships to evolve so we felt comfortable sharing about any situation we may have been dealing with. It was a great learning experience.
