New Benefits & New Webinars for Members

NYCON Member Benefit Spotlight:
Budget & Cash Flow Toolkits!
Every fiscal staff persons' best friend...
Learn More on February 27th at 10:00am

Just in time for budget and cash flow planning, NYCON has developed a new benefit for our member that will truly be the "best friend" of every fiscal person who uses it! 

Designed with the needs and resources of the smaller to medium sized nonprofit in mind, NYCON's Chief Fiscal Officer and staff have designed a "fool proof" tool for developing a streamlined, compliant and easy to understand budget.  

The features of the Budget Toolkit include:

  • Built in instructions on "Getting Started" and"How to Develop Your Budget"
  • Built in formulas and linked spreadsheets
  • Definitions & Glossary on types of budgets, frequently used budgeting terms & more
  • Helpful notes that 'pop up' as you create your budget spreadsheet
  •  Quick and easy allocations (for shared costs like space and supplies, etc.)
  • Templates that your organization can utilize to customize for your own organization's budget and salary and fringe expenditures.
  • And more!
You have to see all the features to believe it!   Experience the Budget Toolkit for yourself.

On this webinar we also featured the new "Cash Flow Toolkit" which, just like the Budget Toolkit, will be a great addition to any nonprofit fiscal office.    


Pros and Cons of  Restructuring a Nonprofit: What it Means for your Staff and Board
February 13th, 2013   10:00am to 12:00pm
Doug Sauer, CEO, NYCON

This thought provoking, insightful event will provide you with knowledge gleaned from decades of Doug's work with hundreds of nonprofits in various stages of formal restructuring, shared service models and, certainly, merger. Doug, perhaps more than anyone on the national nonprofit "scene," knows first-hand that merger (or any type of structural "re-engineering" of your organization) is a serious solution to the very complex issues facing today's nonprofits. Join us and learn from Doug's real world and very practical experiences. Doug will be talking about the variety of options available for restructuring a nonprofit, what the potential benefits and very real risks are -- as well as what the process of going "beyond collaboration" is really like.There will be time for Q&A at the end of the online session so make sure you take advantage of having our resident expert available to you.
