Fee: Free

You've got questions. We want to help you get them answered. Once a month we facilitate "Ask Me Anything" sessions within our Bite-Sized Learning series. We hear about nonprofit trends and topics and bring experts in these trends and topics to field your questions about them. Nonprofits of all sizes are welcome. Bring your lunch and eat while we talk. This month you will be able to "Ask Me Anything" about Accounting. Bring your questions or submit them ahead of time using this form.

Are there questions you have always wanted to ask a nonprofit auditor? What is the difference between Amortization and Depreciation? What does PBC mean anyway? This is your chance to ask the auditor questions! 

The Bite-Sized Learning events are designed by MCN’s Greater Minnesota team to keep us connected across the state. All are welcome here.
