As PKF Texas continues its work-from-home strategy during the COVID-19 pandemic, the firm’s not-for-profit team hosted its first Zoom webinar titled “Adapting to New Daily Challenges Facing Not-for-Profits.”
PKF Texas Audit Senior Manager, Nicole Riley, CPA, CFE, moderated a panel with Matt Kuhlman, Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, Cenikor Foundation; and Jennifer Yancey, Chief Development Officer, Houston Area Women’s Center. Some of the topics they shared insight on included:
- Finding and retaining staff
- Board member retention
- Keeping current on IT and technology
- Collaboration with other entities
- And more
Prior to COVID-19, not-for-profit organizations were already facing challenges, but the pandemic has increased those challenges. In their discussion, Kuhlman and Yancey shared their respective organizations’ experiences and working solutions for each topic – pre-COVID-19, during COVID-19 and looking forward to future operations. For example, everyone agreed there needs to be an emphasis on culture within an organization, speaking to retention efforts. Especially in a pandemic requiring remote workdays, communication from organization leadership is imperative, as well as regular check-ins and reinforced work-life balance and self-care.
