“In the nonprofit world, we’ve had plenty of Enron-type occasions,” said Jonathan Lindsey, president of the local chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals. “It’s just that we pay no attention to it until it affects us personally . . . Any time you run an organization outside of standard business procedure, you’re looking for trouble.”
To seize the moment, the association voted Thursday to take a lead role in organizing financial workshops for local nonprofit organizations. It will collaborate with the Nonprofit Network, a group of charity and social service agencies in the area that meet regularly."
