JMT Consulting, a leader in providing financial management solutions exclusively to nonprofits, announced Aaron Harris as the keynote speaker for their annual nonprofit conference INNOVATE. As Senior Vice President, Head of Engineering and Technology at Sage Intacct, Aaron will focus his keynote on predicting the future of finance for nonprofits. INNOVATE, a four-day educational training conference May 20-23 at the Foxwoods Resort & Casino in Mashantucket, CT, is specifically tailored for nonprofit financial professionals interested in learning current trends in financial technology, budgeting, and best practices that will help build a sustainable future for their organization. Attendees will be eligible for up to 22 hours of Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits.

During the keynote, Aaron Harris, who has more than 20 years of high-tech engineering experience in business applications and software development strategies, will discuss his insights into:

  • What the future holds for finance
  • How cloud computing, AI, and blockchain technologies will impact day-to-day efficiency, performance and optimization
  • How to prepare for any disruption with the right technology
  • How to put the right people and best practices in place now


INNOVATE 2019 is designed to meet the needs of professionals who work in nonprofit accounting or finance. From new staff members to senior finance leaders, INNOVATE has been carefully curated with three different conference experiences to prepare for the future of their nonprofit back office.

  • Pre-conference: introductory sessions and hands-on training for beginners or those needing refresher courses in fund accounting (using MIP™ and Sage Intacct) and budgeting & planning
  • Innovate: mid-to-expert level sessions for a deeper dive into fund accounting, budgeting and add-on technology training that will help streamline their back office
  • Leadership Collaborative: a one and a half day conference-within-a-conference for nonprofit executives to gain valuable insight into the changing role of leadership and learn why you need  to become a data-driven Nonprofit Finance Leader


Attendees can also schedule dedicated, one-on-one instruction and support from JMT Consultants, learn about upcoming solutions at our Innovation Showcase Theater and attend several networking functions. The conference will take place at the Foxwoods Resort and Casino, voted the top casino outside of Las Vegas.
