Executive Director Financial Foundations

Executive Director Financial Foundations

Select Sessions from MIE 2023 Financial Essentials Training
Recorded Virtually September 20 - 22, 2023


Financial skills are a necessary component of an effective leader in a legal aid organization. While an executive director need not be an expert in GAAP or other nuanced financial concepts, an understanding of the organization's financial position is essential to decision making and management. With this necessity in mind, MIE has assembled a discounted bundle of training sessions particularly relevant for a new executive director. The bundle includes presentation slides and session materials.

Session topics include:

  • Annual Budgeting: Developing an Inclusive Process;
  • Financial Statements 101;
  • All About the Form 990;
  • The Executive Director, Director of Finance, and Board of Directors Relationship;
  • Preparing for an Audit; and
  • Demystifying Operating Reserves.

Sessions are each roughly 1 hour in length, and were led by expert presenters at the 2023 Financial Essentials Training. The full training was recorded and is available for purchase here. If you attended the larger training, you already have access to these excerpted recordings in your account.
