New Community Opportunities Center Presents… A National Webinar & Teleconference

May 20, 2015; 3:00 – 4:30 p.m. Eastern

If your Center is pursuing fee-for-service programs, this training might be just what you need. Determining your Center’s costs and setting appropriate rates is something you cannot afford to get wrong. Set your rates too high and you might lose a contract; too low and your new program might be a funding drain. Join us May 20th to take the guesswork out of your planning. Our presenter will teach you how to plan effectively for fee-for-service accounting, while avoiding common pitfalls along the way.
