Diocesan Fiscal Management Conference Wraps Up in Chicago

September 29th, 2014 No comments

The annual Diocesan Fiscal Management Conference (DFMC) in Chicago was, as always, a great experience. The Serenic staff, which included David Cote, Elizabeth Easter, Rhonda Shuptrine, and Mandy Wier spent two days in the exhibit hall catching up with old friends and meeting new contacts in the Diocesan market.

Diocese and Archdiocese have become one of Serenic’s biggest customer bases.  With clients such as the Archdioceses of Atlanta, Orange County, Los Angeles, the Dioceses of Fargo, Salt Lake City, and Orlando, a number of Catholic Charities, and other Catholic organizations, Serenic has become a recognized and respected name in the tight knit DFMC community.

Accountability and Transparency Highlighted at DFMC

October 11th, 2012 No comments

We recently attended the Diocesan Fiscal Management Conference (DFMC) in Houston, TX, a show that has become a staple event in our annual schedule.  We had the opportunity to catch up with some of our nonprofit accounting software users such as the Archdiocese of Atlanta and the Diocese of Fargo, as well as meet new friends.

Our client breakfast featured a demonstration of BudgetVision and the new features included in Serenic Navigator 6.00.02, including enhancements to the Deposits & Loans module.  In addition to the positive feedback we continue to hear from our clients about our Deposits & Loans module, the visitors to our booth also relayed their excitement about a fully integrated Deposits & Loans and Investments module with the Serenic Navigator financial management suite.

One highlight of the conference was the Sunday night keynote speech given by Cardinal Dolan.  He noted that he expects the next attack on the Church to come as an assault on the church’s financial stewardship.  However, by being prepared and using good tools to increase accountability and transparency, the fiscal managers can be equipped to deflect any negative attention.

The members of the Diocesan Fiscal Management Conference (DFMC) are united to serve the Roman Catholic Church in the ministry of fiscal management.  In particular, this organization promotes the spiritual growth of its members, encourages the development of professional relationships among members, facilitates the free exchange of ideas and information, and provides fiscal and administrative expertise and professional services to the local and national Church.

See you again next year!
