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.

  • 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
  • I gained valuable knowledge on running a nonprofit from the OKCNP Leader’s Circle, and I have implemented two important lessons from Marnie Taylor's nonprofit management presentation. More than anything, it has been great to have a group of fellow nonprofit leaders to share triumphs and sorrows. It helps you feel like you are not alone and renews your calling to the cause you work so hard for. The OKCNP staff are also very welcoming and encourage discussion and freedom to ask tough questions

  • The value we’ve received from our membership at OKCNP has been beyond what we could have imagined. As we’ve grown and evolved we’ve utilized the helpline and coaching services from OKCNP. We’re grateful to be able to access these crucial services through OKCNP to help our organization thrive.

  • I am a huge fan of the Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits. As an agency covering 46 counties in Oklahoma, I’m pleased that the OKCNP understands nonprofit challenges across the state, and not just Tulsa and Oklahoma City.

  • "After having partnered with the Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits for years as a director of development, I am thrilled to now work their talented team as a Business Associate. I am so appreciative of the advocacy work they do on behalf of nonprofits and recommend a number of their training programs to my clients."

  • 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 liked the networking in the Tulsa class for Nonprofit Management Certification Program with people I would not normally have the opportunity to mingle. So, the flexibility to float between the 2 cohorts in OKC and Tulsa is great!

  • “We need to be organized and true to our mission. SFX gave us a great framework with which to start building this complex organization. We now have that ability and transparency to maintain the highest standards of ethics and financial procedures. This Accreditation will distinguish us in the crowd. On every grant application and in all negotiations with federal agencies, we talk about our Accreditation and what it brings to our organization.”

    Rex Smitherson Executive Director of i2e
  • The most satisfying part of the Leaders' Circle was getting to know the cohort group members. Being an executive director is a lonely job. Having the ability to discuss issues within a safe forum that OKCNP created was priceless. There was so much experience, knowledge, and wisdom passed around that my own job was ultimately made more enjoyable and productive.

  • 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.
