    Something new, something different

    From the publisher

    By Emily Howard | 02/04/2016

    Welcome to 2016! As we usher in a new year, we have decided to usher in some new features to Association TRENDS. You’ll notice that this issue has a number of new attributes. To start, we’ve combined our Nonprofit CFO of the Year program with our January/February issue. After all, who among our readers does not have a financial right hand co-piloting his or her organization to success. The Nonprofit CFO of the Year Awards, originally founded by Tate & Tryon and West, Lane & Schlager, honor the contributions of nonprofit financial executives who demonstrate a vision for operational excellence, innovation in finance management and exceptional leadership, and commitment to improving accountability and financial reporting. In 2011, Association TRENDS was asked to begin producing the awards, and we have been the proud presenting partner of this prestigious event ever since. In the 10 years since its inception, the event has grown significantly and some incredible financial minds have been recipients. We are very excited about this year’s awardees and hope you will join us in congratulating them.

    Nonprofit CFO of the Year: Deborah Cowan, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer, NPR
    The Nonprofit CFO of the Year is awarded to an outstanding CFO of a nonprofit currently making a vital contribution as the right hand of the executive director and mentor of the team — someone who impacts the performance of the whole organization and whose stature enables him or her to serve as an example of all that is best in the nonprofit world.

    Nonprofit CFO Transformational Leader: Paul Archambeault, Senior Vice President, Chief Financial and Operating Officer, Airlines for America
    The Nonprofit CFO Transformational Leader is awarded to an outstanding CFO of a nonprofit who has played a major role in the transformation of the operations for his or her nonprofit — not only in the financial department but also in the broader operational areas, such as pioneering a significant program, developing and implementing a technological breakthrough, or engineering a reorganization or merger.

    Nonprofit CFO Rising Star: Carolyn Mollen, Chief Financial Officer, Independent Sector
    The Nonprofit CFO Rising Star is awarded to an outstanding CFO of a nonprofit, age 40 or under, who has come to play a major leadership role in supporting the executive director with significant initiatives in the development of his or her nonprofit.
