Nonprofits can be intimating for and unappealing to accounting professionals because of three misunderstandings: Nonprofits cannot afford to pay my fees, nonprofits have highly complex reporting needs that my firm cannot handle well, and annual audits are problematic due to underpaid and understaffed accounting departments within the organization. As an extension of the latter, many accounting practices incorrectly conclude they must have an audit practice to support nonprofits in any meaningful or profitable way.

 

During this episode Joe Woodard and Gregg Bossen, one the nation’s leading advisors to nonprofit organizations, discuss the opportunity and address the challenges around working with nonprofits to give you renewed confidence in the niche and to provide some practical tips and best practices reaching nonprofit organizations as clients.

Joe Woodard and Ron Baker discuss the ground breaking book The Future of the Professions by Richard and Daniel Susskind. In this groundbreaking book, the authors cover the way AI is impacting all professions and the authors also make projections about changes AI will force upon the professions. The changes center around the way AI will disseminate and interpret knowledge through "cognitive assistants," replacing the knowledge curation role that is currently the foundation of all professionals. After discussing the coming changes, Ron and Joe discuss ways accountants can monitor the changes and respond proactively to protect  the vital role they play with their clients.
