Demystifying Charitable Gift Annuity Audits – A Panel Session

Is your Gift Annuity Program up-to-date and ready to pass a NYS Department of Finance Audit with flying colors? Our panel of seasoned gift planners will give you a behind the scenes look at the audit process, and will share tips -- from their own organization’s experiences -- to make your next audit (or perhaps your first audit) go smoothly. 

This session is eligible for CLE, CPE, and CFRE credit.
