DMANF's Critical Issues Conference to Bring Nonprofit Leaders Together in DC on Apr. 19
March 22, 2006 — The Direct Marketing Association Nonprofit Federation's (DMANF) Critical Issues Conference will be held Wednesday, April 19, 2006, at Washington, DC's Holiday Inn Capitol Hill.
The day-long conference will focus specifically on helping nonprofit organizations recognize and successfully navigate the complex world of accounting, ethics and accountability, fundraising management, and transparency -- especially as these issues are being played out on legislative and regulatory fronts at the federal and state level.
"When it comes to these important issues, what you don't know can definitely hurt you," cautions DMANF Executive Director Senny Boone. "Every nonprofit, no matter what its size or mission, needs to be up-to-date on developments in the policy arena that could affect the nonprofit community."
DMA and industry experts will present perspectives, tips, and tools for nonprofits in areas including:
· Federal and state regulations
· IRS classifications and lobbying limitations
· E-mail "pay to send" fees
· Accounting fundamentals
· Accountability and ethics
· Donor privacy and preference
· Management compensation
· Outsourcing fundraising
· Bidding and contracting
Registration is available online through April 12. Complete information is available online at www.nonprofitfederation.org.
