DUTCHESS COUNTY COMPTROLLER ROBIN LOIS PARTNERS WITH ULSTER COUNTY COMPTROLLER MARCH GALLAGHER TO SPONSOR FRAUD DETECTION TRAINING

Poughkeepsie, NY – Dutchess County Comptroller Robin Lois today announced a partnership with Ulster County Comptroller March Gallagher to sponsor fraud detection training focused on the non-profit sector. The training, entitled “Don’t Get Burned” – Fraud Detection and Prevention for the Nonprofit Sector, is developed and lead by New York State Comptroller Tom DiNapoli’s State Government Accountability Division and is designed to help organizations detect and prevent fraud.

Whether your budget is $50,000 or $50,000,000, a non-profit organization could become the victim of fraud. “Don’t Get Burned” is designed for non-profit executive directors, program managers, finance and human resources staff, and board members, and can prepare individuals and organizations to be proactive in protecting their finances by strengthening internal controls and assessing potential risks.

“Non-profit agencies and organizations are essential in delivering so many critical services throughout our communities,” said Dutchess County Comptroller Robin Lois. “I’m incredibly proud to be a resource for our non-profit partners, and provide this training to help safeguard their financial health.”

This seminar builds upon other successful programs hosted in the past. Comptroller Lois sponsored a similar training seminar in October 2019, which was attended by nearly 100 individuals representing over 50 organizations throughout the Hudson Valley. This year’s training seminar will take place virtually on Wednesday, August 4th from 9am to 11am, and is being hosted by Family Services Inc. The seminar is free to attend, and CPAs may qualify for CPE Credits. To register, please email Carolyn Malile of Family Services at cmalile@familyservicesny.org.
