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.

  • 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.

  • OKCNP is on top of state and local legislation, trends and concerns, and they are a trusted advocate and resource for our agency at the Capitol.

  • "[OKCNP's Shared Financial Services] has been a tremendous service that I honestly don’t know how we could have afforded it if it wasn’t for the Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits."

  • 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'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."

  • "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!"

  • “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."

  • 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 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.

  • 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.
