FREE Grants Training and Chapter Development Meeting for Kentucky/Tennessee
NGMA is holding a grants training and networking opportunity in Somerset, Kentucky on Thursday, November 30, 2017 from 10am – 2:30pm. This FREE grants training is for members and non-members.
Come learn about NGMA, learn something new about grants, and network with other grant professionals in your area! All NGMA members and prospective members are encouraged to join us for a chapter development meeting over a brown bag lunch.
This session will explore the relationship between program income, as implemented in 2 CRF 200, and unrelated business income tax (UBIT) as implemented in the Internal Revenue Code (IRC §511).
All organizations attempt to add income to operations to survive. The manner of generating that income is crucial – is the income permissible under the program income rules – or is the income outside the “scope” of the Federal award. Following closely on the heels of that Q&A come the questions: (1) is do you generate income within the normal scope of operations (mission), (2) if not, what are the consequences, and (3) how can the organization avoid income tax imposed upon unrelated (outside the scope of mission) activities.
This session is designed to enlighten on this subject and to generate questions about exactly how these issues dovetail with the attendees’ everyday jobs. The takeaways include questions, questions, questions, and a beginning point from which to address them.
Bridging the Grants: Finance Language Barrier—Real Strategies to Help Grants and Finance Understand Each Other
Johna Rodgers, GPC, Principal Consultant, Johna Rodgers Consulting
It’s just a purchase order. But when Finance sends it back to the Grants Office for the third time, war erupts. Why can’t Finance make things easier? Why can’t Grant staff fill out a form? Who’s right? Everybody, of course! In Bridging the Grants/Finance Language Barrier, we will work through more than a dozen practical, tested ways to bridge that language (and personality) divide to help you all get it right the first time!
Compliance – The Backbone of Grants Management
Vicki Hiestand, CGMS, Associate Director of Finance & Grants Compliance, The Center for Rural Development
Internally and externally, we grants management professionals have lots to comply with: circulars, laws, regulations, policies, guidelines, etc. The list seems unending. Whether you are part of a huge team or a one person show, it does not have to be a herculean task. Maybe we can help each other.
