    Panel Discussion

    Rob Dickinson, CPA, Controller, National Council of Architectural Registration Boards
    Christian Spencer, CPA, Partner, Tate & Tryon

    How much should your organization have in reserves and why? Members are asking questions, revenue sources are maturing, and economic conditions are changing—not always for the better. Now, perhaps more than at any previous time, nonprofit organizations need to be thoughtful about how they determine how much to maintain in reserves and how they manage these important assets.

    • The history behind reserve funds, from the “why’s?” to the “how much?”
    • The importance of “bucketing” reserve funds
    • Using Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) to identify risks and opportunities unique to your organization
    • How one association used ERM to “right size” its reserves
