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.

NYCON members who use First Nonprofit’s programs enjoy enduring savings and improved efficiency. Our association knows that success, because from the beginning, we achieved the same great benefits. Great savings, seamless technology, and responsive service. NYCON highly recommends First Nonprofit’s remarkable unemployment solutions.
We were introduced to First Nonprofit through another housing authority. In our analysis and comparison to what we were paying the State, our first year savings was $5,800 plus. We have been with them since the end of 2008 and I am glad we have been. I consider them an arm of our HR department.
Because INCS advocates for the operating conditions that allow charter public schools to provide high quality public education, partnering with First Nonprofit was an easy decision. First Nonprofit’s unemployment programs provide our member schools two operating elements crucial to their ability to provide high quality public education: savings and budget certainty. Capable, committed teachers are the key to student success. By participating in the unemployment insurance savings plan, charter public schools gain peace of mind and are able to invest more money in their teachers.
Throughout our membership in the Unemployment Savings Program, First Nonprofit understood our demands, community dynamics, and the importance of seamless services; that allowed us to serve our constituents better.
