Fraud Prevention in Non-Profit and Municipal Organizations

Wednesday, July 31, 2019 from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m.
Stone Family Center for Health Sciences, Downtown Evansville

Theft within non-profit organizations, government agencies, and other public institutions not only result in financial loss, but erodes public trust and affects the organizations ability to achieve its mission and goals. Providing a framework for board members, leadership teams, or volunteers is essential in organizations running as effectively and efficiently as possible. "Fraud Prevention in Non-Profit and Municipal Organizations" is a discussion of the costs associated with theft in the public sector, current policies that place public agencies at risk of being victims of theft, and organizational changes that can protect agencies from this type of crime.
