Ask a CPA: Considerations to manage and grow your nonprofit organization
Susan McCarthy, CPA, MST, CSEP
As 2021 comes to a close many nonprofits are focusing on getting their financial houses in order. This Lunch and Learn led by Susan McCarthy CPA will be an opportunity to learn and ask questions. Susan will address specific areas in Finances and Accounting as well as Fundraising and Operations. For example, in the area of Finances and Accounting Susan will discuss:
Accounting Systems and Processes
Annual Nonprofit returns
Annual Budget/Cashflow projections
She will also share a resource list as well as a roadmap for identifying the 10 Key Steps to Close the Gap Between Setting Goals and Achieving Them.

Let's talk about Standing up, Speaking Up, and Bearing Witness
Rev. Dr. Debbie Clark, Open Spirit
We've all been there. You find yourself in a situation where you know you are witnessing harm being done to another person and you want to intervene. But how? What do you say? How do you go from being a passive onlooker to an active bystander?
Rev. Dr. Debbie Clark and a TAB trainer will give an overview of the training developed by Quabbin Mediation which draws upon research and the wisdom of the gathered participants to identify barriers to active bystandership and develop ways to overcome them. You will leave this Lunch and Learn with a better understanding and tools to move from silence to action in 2022.
We are thrilled to announce that MWNN will be launching a new affinity group for Volunteer Program leaders who are building, implementing, or managing volunteer programs. Like our Lone Rangers group, this will be a place to share issues, exchange ideas, discuss challenges and strategies and support each other in the important work of aligning the work of volunteers with the mission of your organization.
We're so pleased that Polly Mendoza, former Executive Director of Neighbor Brigade and lifelong volunteer and nonprofit leader has graciously agreed to facilitate this group.
Her passions and skills intersect in the areas of integrating equitable practices, managing, and leveraging volunteer corps, and innovative strategic planning. Polly worked with the Massachusetts Service Alliance and the MetroWest Nonprofit Network to complete the Service Enterprise training and successfully acquired certification for Neighbor Brigade.
The group will meet on the first Wednesday of every month from 12:30-1:30. Join us on January 5, 2022, (and help us name the group!)
If you are interested in attending the meeting or have any questions please send an email here.
