BDO's Bill Eisig: Innovating Future Audits

Earlier this year, we celebrated the one-year anniversary of the Nonprofit Standard Blog and launched a reader survey to learn more about our readership and what subjects are top of mind for you. Now, we’re opening the floor for your comments and thoughts on how we can make this blog the best possible resource on nonprofit accounting and financial management.

We know these can be trying times for the nonprofit sector, with challenges including skyrocketing costs and less public funding for universities, decreased contributions for public charities, and growing complexity in the regulatory environment. Please check out a short personal audio message from BDO’s Nonprofit & Education practice leader Bill Eisig for more on the mission of the blog and his hopes for its future. He asks what we can do to keep our blog fresh, up-to-date and, most importantly, relevant for you. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below, via email or on Twitter.

As always, we thank you for your continued readership!
