Online Fundraising 101: Building Relationships & Moving People to Act! [Lunch & Learn Webinar]
Presented by Valerie Venezia, VP of Membership & Marketing and  Audrey Grifel, Capacity Building Advisor, NYCON
May 9th, 2014   11:00am to 12:30pm  
Getting our message straight, connecting it to the right people and getting them to act on our nonprofit's behalf (give money, time, attend a function, etc.) has becoming increasingly more difficult - yet more important than ever. In order for the "new donor" to start giving it's not enough for them to know you "do good work." They have to feel like they know your organization's "personality," and that they have a real relationship with you. Relationships like this can take a lot of time and attention to build and maintain - even online -- and once in a while they require some non-traditional communication methods (and messages.) In this webinar our staff will give you an overview of what every nonprofit can do to define an impactful message, connect it to the right folks and begin to build an active relationship that benefits both parties. Some tips and tools will be shared on ways nonprofits can cultivate relationships online (including what websites & tools might be best to use) that turn into dollars in the real world.

How to Conduct a Medicaid Self Audit
May 15th, 2014   11:00am to 12:30PM
Presented by David R. Ross, Esq, and David M. Rottkamp, CPA
Part of any provider's compliance program is their compliance plan, and the key part of any compliance plan is the concept of risk assessment and self auditing. This means identifying where errors are most likely to be made, and then reviewing your Medicaid claims and documentation for compliance with applicable requirements. Hypotheticals for risk assessment and self audit will be discussed. As participants will hear, self auditing can be the best preventative medicine. A question and answer period will be provided.
