Powering Up Board Financial Oversight - Staffed Land Trusts
Two editions are available to address both staffed and all-volunteer land trust considerations. This version is for staffed land trusts.
See the version for all-volunteer land trusts.
Presented by experienced consultant and accountant Kay Sohl
What Will Be Discussed?
While boards are responsible for the financial health of their land trusts, if they do not understand how to read a financial statement, they put their land trust at risk of embezzlement, financial collapse or even IRS scrutiny.
Kay Sohl takes the fear and confusion out of understanding the board’s fiduciary responsibilities in this easy-to-follow webinar video-recording and discussion guide. The kit includes exercises that will help you engage or re-engage your board members in their financial oversight job. Also included are sample financial dashboards to make tracking finances easier for board members. There are two editions, each containing content specifically relevant to all-volunteer land trust boards and those with staffed land trusts.
