21st Annual Wipfli National Training Conference, July 12-17, 2020 - Caesars Palace - Las Vegas, Nevada 21st Annual Wipfli National Training Conference

Why attend?

Having strong internal controls and understanding the rules governing how you can and cannot spend federal dollars are keys to fiscal management and overall compliance in your organization…and these rules are changing.

Professionals new to the organization as well as professionals who have been there for decades will benefit from this training on the administrative and cost principles/allocation sections of the 2 CFR Part 200 — Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards.

Join this training workshop to learn about the Uniform Guidance regulations and, more importantly, how to implement them into your organization. Review the regulations you need to know to stay in compliance through examples, stories, and best practices learned from years of auditing and consulting. Take back up-to-date and relevant information to implement immediately in your agency.

Wipfli’s nonprofit experts have been presenting the highest-quality training for more than 40 years. Participants declare Wipfli training "empowering," "outstanding," "meaningful," "invaluable" and "relevant." At this training, Denes L. Tobie and Ciara Leahy will provide you with in-depth training relating to financial management and administration and community action-specific requirements.
