Hear what previous participants had to say!

"This training was an excellent opportunity to connect with other CFOs of Legal Aids to gain knowledge of financial guidelines and how Legal Aids across the country are implementing reform."

"The sharing of best practices within the Legal Aid financial aid community is an essential need that all participants can benefit from."

"I found the training very comprehensive and stimulating and came away with a long list of changes I'd like to make for my organization- some specifically for the finance department and others on a organization-wide basis looking towards the future and sustainability with focus on best practices. It was also great to be with peers as I feel isolated as I work at the only Legal Aid org in my state." 

"The MIE training provided the perfect platform to share financial information and highly effective techniques with others in non-profit (LSC) community."

"Great opportunity to connect with other financial people and learn other ways of doing things." 

"The MIE Financial Essentials training is invaluable for financial leaders of non-profit organizations.  I highly recommend and am looking forward to attending future trainings." 

"This was a very worthwhile training which provided comprehensive coverage of financial topics by knowledgeable experts."

"This training was great for all members of our finance team.  Everyone left this training with ideas on improving their job and our program." 

"Financial management and grant administration are critical to the success of legal aid organizations.  Thanks to MIE for developing a new conference so we can all improve our capacity to increase resources and manage the complex demands of multiple funding sources."
