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.

  • 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.

  • 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
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 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 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

  • 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!

  • 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.
