Business Continuity Planning has never been more essential to ensuring the viability - perhaps even the survival - of a business, regardless of its size, location, or industry segment.

Part 1 of this session is designed to put you at the decision-making center of an organization experiencing a real-life disaster situation, as it unfolds.  At the conclusion of the mock disaster, you'll have a different appreciation of the extraordinary challenges of managing a crises environment and the importance of thorough advance planning.

Part 2 will provide you a riveting snapshot of what is happening in the country in relation to growing security concerns relative to nonprofits.  This discussion is designed for senior leadership and is designed to provoke thought.

Join fellow nonprofit CEOs and CFOs as leading experts discuss findings from the most recent TRENDS 2015 Financial and Operational Excellence Survey. Hundreds of association leaders weighed in on a range of financial and operational issues including forecasting for 2016, investment portfolio planning and vendor management. Find out what the results mean for organizations like yours.

This interactive session, open only to senior association and nonprofit professionals, is the ideal setting to openly discuss issues and concerns facing the association and nonprofit community. You’ll hear from a panel of association leaders led by expert moderator David Kushner of The Kushner Companies, and have ample opportunity to pose your own questions.

The expert panel will offer insight on the survey’s findings from association executives including responses to the following questions:

  • What areas do you have major, new initiatives planned for 2015?
  • In the next 6 months, do you expect non-dues revenue to increase, decrease or stay the same?
  • What areas do you expect expenses to rise and what kind of cost controls will be put into place?
  • What specific vendors would you recommend to other senior association executives?
  • What actions have you taken to try to improve the return on your organization’s investment portfolio?
  • What types of financial and consulting services are most important to your association?
