25 Ways Your Bookkeeper Can Steal From You
Bookkeepers are not licensed. Since it is so hard to get real information through referencing, small business owners have to hire bookkeepers simply through what they are told during the interview. Often, business owners don't know how to ask the right questions of their bookkeeper so they are at their mercy. There are many ways to hide theft when you are a key employee who handles money, and often it goes on for years. This class gives 25 examples of theft by bookkeepers with examples what you should look for to minimize risk. All examples are cases the instructor has seen over 40 years of experience.

Starting A Nonprofit Organization Workshop
This half-day workshop combines the seminars "So You Think You Wish to Start a Nonprofit Organization" and Starting a Nonprofit Organization: Legal Nuts and Bolts". You get two workshops for the price of one! In the first half of the session you will learn how to determine if there is a necessity for another NPO to do what you want to do. Do you really understand what you are getting into? Who should be consulted? Who should be involved? How does collaboration add to the success of your NPO? How do you find supporters, clients, financial support? Have you considered fiscal sponsorship? - That option could allow your organization to grow initially under the umbrella of another charitable nonprofit until it's mature enough to stand on its own. The second half of the session covers learning the legal steps to choose a nonprofit entity, the legal duties and responsibilities of management, business risks, entity, picking a name, obtaining a tax identification number, forms for governance such as bylaws, resolutions and meeting preparation. Highly recommended reading before the workshop: www.texascbar.org/content/legal_library/pubs/downloads/NonProfitLegalToolkit2011.pdfhttp://www.texascbar.org/content/legal_library/pubs/downloads/NonProfitLegalToolkit2011.pdf

From Clutter to Clarity--Take Control of Your Office
Clutter drains you of energy and time! The people who recognize and reduce clutter are more effective and in control--and therefore less stressed. To be truly productive, you need to be one step ahead of events, instead of always just reacting to what each day brings. By implementing the suggestions in these classes, you'll find that you finally have the time to get caught up, think creatively, meet more challenges, and do whatever it is you want to do. The secret to making your life clutter free is for you to organize it and keep it that way. In 6651 (Office), you'll look at your office with fresh eyes and set up new ways to keep your office organized.
