North Carolina nonprofits have an exciting conference coming up

Nonprofit groups off all sizes in the Tar Heel State have valuable learning and networking opportunities coming up at the North Carolina Center for Nonprofits' next statewide conference. The 2014 Statewide Conference for North Carolina's Nonprofit Sector features three days of events to help charitable groups and other nonprofits create strong local connections and learn about many different avenues to become more effective in their missions. The event takes place at Sheraton Imperial Hotel at Research Triangle Park from Wednesday, Sept. 17 through Friday, Sept. 19.

First Nonprofit Group, which is partnered with the North Carolina Center for Nonprofits, will offer an informative exhibit as part of the event's marketplace, which will be open for one full day on Thursday, Sept. 18. The information from First Nonprofit Group will center around the choices that governmental agencies, tribal enterprises and charitable organizations can make to lessen the impact of state unemployment tax (SUTA) costs while still meeting the necessary obligations. Nonprofits can declare as reimbursing employers with the NC Department of Employment Security and directly compensate dollar-for-dollar any unemployment claims made by former employees. This approach can save a significant amount of money, but could also lead to increased liability. First Nonprofit Group offers solutions for businesses that combine lower costs with a high level of security, meeting obligations while freeing up funds for other uses at an organization.

The 2014 conference features a wide variety of events, from educational sessions about adaptive leadership, sustainability and legal updates to dedicated networking periods and the presentation of the 2014 Nonprofit Sector Stewardship Awards. Individual consulting events, exhibits from a variety of nonprofit assistance organizations and other opportunities will also be available.

First Nonprofit has saved us so much money over the state’s program. We had one little glitch with the state recently and we contacted FNP immediately. FNP staff called us back immediately and moved to remedy the problem.

Life is certainly busy these days but having business partners like First Nonprofit has made some of the process hassle free. We have worked with this team for years. When we changed payroll systems, they outlined every step. I think this team is terrific and I know they get the job done! Thank you, Cruz, to all the team at FNP.

FNP has helped our agency to save thousands of dollars every year on our unemployment coverage. The service is phenomenal, and we are thankful to their team as our partner. My experience working with Marshall on the advocacy around UE for nonprofits was also a highlight as someone who teaches advocacy and lobbying for nonprofits. Really, your whole team is top shelf, so thank YOU!

Chicago Children’s Theatre has greatly benefited from our partnership with First Nonprofit, and I have always enjoyed working with the staff on our filings and any complicated questions. I would not hesitate to recommend First Nonprofit to fellow nonprofits. We’re very happy customers.

FNP is a great resource for Daniel Kids. To have a TPA that we can count on to take point on not only managing our unemployment claims, but to support and guide any protest hearing, is invaluable. All the professional support staff we have worked with have been excellent, very knowledgeable and responsive. We are grateful for the help and support, thank you.

When I first began in my position at my organization, I hadn’t had experience working with a company like FNP. The staff was so patient and helpful in helping to explain the benefits of First Nonprofit. Anytime I reach out with a question I receive a quick, clear, and thorough response. I’m so thankful that we decided to partner with FNP. Their excellence in customer service, coupled with their variety of packages frees us up to truly serve our staff and community with a peace of mind knowing that our organization is protected against unanticipated unemployment insurance expenses.

First Nonprofit gets an A+ in my book. You are so easy to work with & very knowledgeable! Whether it is my quarterly correspondence with Kim or my random interactions with Dawn about a bond … I am so pleased that I get to work with such a helpful company. Thank you!
