Utah nonprofits can learn about risk management, cost savings at upcoming conference

Nonprofits in the Beehive State have an exciting opportunity to learn about effective options for managing their unemployment costs at the upcoming Utah Nonprofits Association (UNA) Conference. First Nonprofit Group, a partner of the UNA, will be in attendance as an exhibitor to help visitors learn about the various options they have for reimbursing jobless claims as an alternative to contributing to the state unemployment tax (SUTA) pool. Along with this opportunity, attendees will be able to take part in breakout sessions and speak with a wide array of exhibitors to learn about effective strategies that can be utilized in many different operational areas by nonprofit groups of all sizes and forms.

Under the cohesive theme of "Leading together as forces for good," members of the Utah Nonprofits Association will be able to learn about aspects of operation ranging from financial management, volunteer development, leadership and fundraising. A series of informative sessions in seven different categories run throughout the day, which will be kicked off by a keynote breakfast speech from Leslie Crutchfield, who recently authored nonprofit guidance book "Forces for Good." Crutchfield, who focuses on high-impact philanthropy and scaling social innovation in her work, will also lead two of the breakout sessions.

Prospective attendees have a variety of options for the conference, including full- and half-day registration types. There will be plenty of opportunities to learn about effective nonprofit management and interact with exhibitors and vendors offering information, products and services to help charitable organizations succeed. The conference will take place on Sept. 18 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Utah Cultural Celebration Center in West Valley City. To learn more and to register for the event, follow this link.

We first started using First Nonprofit’s Unemployment Savings Program when we were a small startup nonprofit.  We didn’t have an HR department and needed expertise in the event that an unemployment claim was made.  We knew we were eligible to be a reimbursing employer, but weren’t sure how to navigate that process.  They made it easy to set things up, plan for, and then manage claims when they came at a very reasonable cost. The amount of time and stress they’ve saved us dealing with all this has been worth way more than the cost.  We’ve now grown to a large nonprofit and do have an HR department but have no plans to stop using their services.  I highly recommend them to every nonprofit I come into contact with!


Throughout our membership in the Unemployment Savings Program, First Nonprofit understood our demands, community dynamics, and the importance of seamless services; that allowed us to serve our constituents better.

Because INCS advocates for the operating conditions that allow charter public schools to provide high quality public education, partnering with First Nonprofit was an easy decision. First Nonprofit’s unemployment programs provide our member schools two operating elements crucial to their ability to provide high quality public education: savings and budget certainty. Capable, committed teachers are the key to student success. By participating in the unemployment insurance savings plan, charter public schools gain peace of mind and are able to invest more money in their teachers.
