The FIRM Institute is offered at no cost to nonprofit leaders serving Montgomery County and provides a 2-day Intensive Workshop focused on strengthening the partnership between Staff and Board in managing nonprofit organizations for financial sustainability. FIRM also includes additional Tutorials as well as follow-up support and access to resources.

FIRM will be offered twice in 2014-15, each on two consecutive days from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM on: November 12-13, 2014 and March 11-12, 2015.

Attendance by the nonprofit’s CEO/Executive Director is required for both days and participants are strongly urged to have their CFO or another staff member who has responsibilities related to accounting, finance or budget also attend. In addition, a Board member—ideally a Board Chair or Board Treasurer from each participating agency is required to attend the first half-day module that will address issues of fiscal leadership, partnership and oversight.

Three 2-hour follow-up Tutorials providing hands-on work provide an opportunity to work with your peers on specific skills or issues that affect the financial management of your organization. At least one person from each agency is required to attend these tutorials.

Participants in FIRM are also invited to attend Alumni Workshops that are held 3 to 4 times a year and focus on topics of interest to nonprofit leaders. Past Workshops include nonprofit IT management and financial fraud in the nonprofit workplace.

FIRM is sponsored by Nonprofit Roundtable Montgomery and supported by Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services, The Community Foundation for Montgomery County’s Nonprofit Advancement Fund and the Mead Family Foundation. The 2-day intensive workshop includes a module presented by the County Department of Health and Human Services Finance Team on best practices in doing business with the County.
