Is your head spinning yet? As administrators working in arts education, we are often trained as facilitators, educators, and artists. But we rarely get training on non-profit bookkeeping and accounting.
Join the Roundtable for Finance 101 for Arts Administrators and learn essential bookkeeping practices, how to read/create a budget, and more! Now’s your chance to ask a panel of non-profit professionals all the questions you want to know about finance (but were too afraid to ask).
