The Nonprofit CFO of the Year Awards


Each year the CFO Awards recognize the often unsung leadership role CFOs have in the important works nonprofits do, working generally behind the scene as a key supporter of the executive director, to keep the organization moving forward. Co-founded in 2006 by Tate & Tryon and West, Lane & Schlager, this annual event recognizes and honors the contributions of nonprofit financial executives who demonstrate a vision for operational excellence, innovation in finance and management, and exceptional leadership and commitment to improving accountability and financial reporting.

Association TRENDS Live

Association TRENDS Live

The TRENDS LIVE Series is exclusively designed for executive-level staff at associations and nonprofits with a focus on CFOs, CEOs, CMOs and COOs. Each breakfast session brings together top industry experts and a panel of leading nonprofit executives to address specific issues affecting the association community. These sessions serve as an opportunity for top-level executives to network, discuss major issues and hear from a panel of their peers and hand-selected experts. Quarterly session topics include: nonprofit executive compensation issues, nonprofit technology decisions, social media issues, intellectual property rights and legislative conferences.

Who Attends?
Access to our breakfast series is accessible only to senior level executives at associations and nonprofits. Attendance at each meeting is intentionally limited for quality networking and interaction during the presentations and panel discussions. This highly targeted audience is ideal for sponsors looking to make personal connections with potential partners.

"You can't cold call your way to success any more. Getting in a room with your prospects in a meaningful way with meaningful content is the best thing you could do."
