Financial Know-How

ALEXANDRIA, Va. -- NACS is offering the "Accounting In An Hour" program to members and their employees at special discounted pricing. The 60-minute course -- available via live seminar and DVD -- helps non-financial staff gain accounting knowledge that can make them more valuable and productive in their careers.

The course quickly demystifies financial statements and shows how organizations make and lose money, and how assets and liabilities are recorded. Participants learn how to interpret accounting terminology and goals; to take part in financial discussions and read reports; to achieve job and self-satisfaction; and to appreciate what an organization must do to turn a profit. From an organizational perspective, the course also may help companies comply with Sarbanes-Oxley reporting requirements.

"Anyone who cannot read a financial statement puts limitations on his or her career. They cannot contribute at meetings where finance is an issue and cannot provide a meaningful financial opinion. But Accounting In An Hour can change all that," said Rick J. Makoujy, Jr., who created the seminar after friends and associates were calling him regularly for help simplifying the complexities of corporate finance.

Companies, such as International Paper, Pitney Bowes, Coldwell Banker, Harrah's Entertainment and others have profited from the program, he noted.

Accounting In An Hour is available for individual, group and corporate purchase. An online version of the program will be unveiled this spring.
