FORT WORTH, Texas, Dec. 2, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- The recently created 990 Alliance will host a one-day conference on Wednesday, December 8, 2010 to discuss the 2011 economic outlook and its potential effect on nonprofit organizations.

Conference topics include, Elements of a Successful Charitable Giving Program, Return on Investment and Developing an Effective Nonprofit Marketing Strategy.  There will also be discussions on Social Media Practices for Nonprofit and Understanding and Communicating the Standards of Conduct of Nonprofit Decision Makers.

According to Rob Opitz, Partner at Rylander, Clay & Opitz, LLP, "Nonprofit organizations are facing challenges on many fronts, including declining funding due to general economic conditions.  The 990 Alliance was formed by firms representing legal, accounting, tax and marketing, who all have a long history of serving clients in the nonprofit community." Doug Briley, CEO of Warren Douglas and 990 charter member adds, "We are very enthusiastic about being able to make this kind of content available and affordable to nonprofits in our region.  This format makes it economically feasible for many organizations to benefit simultaneously and implement good governance that will protect their tax-exempt status."

The 990 Alliance is a collaboration that began in early 2010 by three professional services firms in Tarrant County: Bourland, Wall & Wenzel, PC (legal), Rylander, Clay & Opitz, LLP (accounting), and Warren Douglas, LP (marketing). These practice areas have proven critical to helping tax-exempt organizations operate effectively and sustainably. The 990 Alliance offers an efficient, non-threatening venue for sharing best practices and risk management among non-profit executives, helping them focus on their mission with good governance and accountability.

990 Alliance programs are offered to board members, officers, and senior executives of tax-exempt organizations.  The Conference will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the City Club Ballroom, 301 Commerce St., Fort Worth.  The deadline for enrollment is 5:00 p.m. on Friday, December 3.
