Financial Confidence Bootcamp

Evergreen Chapter CMAA

The balance of power in board and finance committee meetings can be challenging as many board and finance committee members are professional financial executives (CPAs, CFOs, CEOs, etc.). While those volunteer leaders understand finance, they do not understand the specifics of private club finance. This four-part series is designed sequentially to build the knowledge, skills, and confidence you need to communicate, discuss and even debate club finance with anyone, including a Fortune 500 CFO.
