Columbus Chapter Meeting

Thursday, July 12 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

We encourage all Columbus members and members in the surrounding area to JOIN US for a live non-recorded presentation and an opportunity to network with other grant professionals in the area.

While chapter meetings are a member-only benefit, non-members are able to experience one complimentary meeting. If you know someone who has not attended an NGMA chapter meeting and would benefit from the topics we discuss, feel free to invite that colleague to this meeting.


Internal Controls: Your First Line of Defense

Dan Durst, Capital Edge Consulting

The nonprofit community was recently stunned when it was revealed that a large national nonprofit organization suffered an embezzlement of over seven million dollars at the hands of one of its most trusted accountants. Adequate internal controls are critical to preventing fraud, waste, and abuse. OMB expects all non-Federal entities to have a documented system of controls that provides reasonable assurance that Federal awards are being managed in compliance with Federal statutes, regulations, and the terms and conditions of the Federal award. In this session, we will discuss the basic principles of internal controls, the key requirements in 2 CFR 200, differences between preventative vs detective, proper segregation of duties, and common control activities related to high-risk areas in the organization.
