In September 2009 I provided information regarding the IRS new regulations for Form 990 and its possible effects on rape crisis centers in the blog post  The I the R and the S.   In the coming months many nonprofits will be preparing to file their 990’s; I thought it would be appropriate to provide a webinar on this relevant, timely and crucial topic. 
On Thursday, March 11, 2010 , 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm (pacific standard time) CALCASA will provide a webinar titled “Are you ready for the New 990?”   The description of the informative training is as follows:

Year after year organizations gather their financial information and file their Form 990 with the Internal Revenue Service.  Recently, that form changed – and the impact felt beyond the walls of the accounting office.

  • Do you have a written whistle blower policy?
  • Does the organization have a written document retention and destruction policy?
  • Are officers, directors or trustees and key employees required to disclose annually interests that could give rise to conflicts?

These are just some of the questions on the new Form 990 that significantly upgrades the level of governance reporting as well as how financial and mission information is presented to the general public.  This webinar will provide an update on changes and outline steps that organizations should take to prepare for filing the 990.

The webinar will be facilitated by Steven D. Zimmerman, Principal of Spectrum Nonprofit Services.
