NEW YORK – (January 6, 2014) - The 2014 agenda for nonprofit organizations includes an array of complex accounting and regulatory changes that will impact organizations in the nonprofit sector, including New York’s newest law overhauling oversight and improving public trust.

The New York State Society of CPAs,, is ready to provide clarity about these latest developments at its 36th Annual Nonprofit  Conference  to be held Thursday, Jan. 9 in Rochester and again Thursday, Jan. 16 in New York City.
Non profit executives, board members and financial employees are invited to attend the conference:  “The Age of Clarity – Changing Standards and Changing Legislation”, the Society’s largest event of the year, to learn more about the changes in governance, specialized accounting techniques and reporting requirements for philanthropic groups.
The Nonprofit Revitalization Act of 2013 – which was signed into law December 18 by Governor Andrew Cuomo - aims to reduce unnecessary and outdated burdens on New York nonprofits and to enhance nonprofit governance and oversight to prevent fraud and improve public trust. The Act is the first substantial overhaul of New York’s nonprofit laws in more than 40 years. 
The new law is one of several conference sessions topics that will also include stakeholder communications, electronic contribution and government aid.  Yellow Book and Continuing Professional Education credits are available for this event.  For the complete conference schedule and to register  go to
