Webinars

We host webinars about six times a year. Some are educational webinars lead by a guest presenter; others are open roundtable discussions on topics of interest to home repair nonprofits. All webinars are free for members and cost $5-15 for non-members.

Upcoming Webinars:

BEST PRACTICES IN ACCOUNTING
Tuesday, October 2, 3:00-4:00pm EDT
We are excited to offer education and support for administrative support staff in this webinar. Our goal is to share best practices for nonprofit finances, including tricks and tips. We know that some smaller organizations don't have dedicated accounting staff, and we hope that this online event will be especially helpful for them. The webinar will be led by a panel of three ReFrame members: Ed Simmons is the Executive Director of Mountain T.O.P. in Altamont, TN. He has an accounting background. Susan Miller is the Senior Director of Accounting of Appalachia Service Project in Johnson City, TN. You might remember her from ReFrame Conference 2016; she led a session with Charles Oberweiser about financial benchmarks. Jake Bailey is the Business Manager at Sierra Service Project in Sacramento, CA. Each panelist will share 10-15 of content and there will be plenty of time for Q&A as well. Register now; it's FREE for members and $5 for everyone else.

HELPING TO MITIGATE RISK - Volunteer Background Screening Insights & Best Practices
Tuesday, October 30, 1:30-2:30pm EDT
This webinar will be led by a ReFrame partner, Verified Volunteers, the only background screening platform tailored to meet the specific needs of nonprofits. In the presentation, you'll explore these questions and topics: Are you sacrificing quality for a cheaper background check? Find out the repercussions of low-cost checks. The truth behind the FBI’s fingerprinting database – It’s far from the gold standard. Is your screening program FCRA compliant? If not, a civil lawsuit could be just around the corner. Cost saving measures for your screening program to help your bottom line. The webinar is NOT a sales pitch for Verified Volunteers. The information in the webinar will be relevant to all home repair nonprofits, whether or not they choose to use Verified Volunteers for background checks. Register now; it's FREE for members and $10 for everyone else.
