Dozens of volunteers from several area booster groups, school boards, churches, community organizations and more recently learned best practices for keeping their group's money safe.
Indian Lake High School hosted a free, nonprofit training event with Beth Short, from the Ohio Attorney General's Charitable Law Section.
Short offered history and expert advice for making sure the intended beneficiaries of funds get the full use of those resources. 
"We help good people do good things the right way," she explained. 
Short detailed how to avoid theft in a nonprofit by developing antitheft procedures including limiting use of cash, reconciling bank statements in a timely fashion, establishing reimbursement policies, requiring dual signatures and more. She also discuss the warning signs possible trouble including bounced checks, audit results and sudden, unexplained changes in lifestyle of employees or volunteers. She also advised developing an action plan should problems arise.
