11:00 am - 12:30 pm (Eastern Time)

Your control environment has changed with the implementation of remote workplaces, and your organization may be facing new risks that did not exist before.  Even the best internal controls have limitations, and every organization should do its best to ensure effective control environments persevere in the midst of the changes we are facing.  Join us as we discuss these challenges and learn how association leaders are finding solutions as nonprofits evolve in response to these unprecedented times.
