Columbus Nonprofit Symposium: A Recap

We had a great turnout at this year’s Nonprofit Symposium, with more than 100 leaders of Columbus nonprofit organizations.

The day included spirited sessions including how information technology can be used to prevent fraud, the fiduciary responsibilities that accompany employee benefit plans (as well as the new fee disclosure requirements that are forthcoming for employee benefit plans), board governance and cash flow management, to name a few topics.

There was also a great panel discussion featuring Chuck Gehring, President and CEO of Life Care Alliance, Matt Habash, President and CEO of the Mid-Ohio Foodbank, and Jim Stein, President of the Furniture Bank of Central Ohio. The panel discussion centered on the benefits of camaraderie in the non-profit industry and doing whatever it takes to serve individuals in the community.

The nonprofit symposium is an annual event hosted by Schneider Downs to foster discussions about the topics most relevant to the nonprofit industry. While the CPE is always valuable, it’s invaluable to have the opportunity to exchange ideas with peers and contemporaries. Thanks to all who attended this year’s event. We’re already looking forward to next year. If you missed the symposium, but are interested in any of the above topics, drop me an email at and I will be happy to get you in touch with the presenter of the topic you are interested in or get you the information you are looking for.
