07.12.2017Let’s disrupt the Not-for-Profit sector
On 7 December 2017, Committee for Melbourne hosted its inaugural not-for-profit meeting at the Henley Club, an event supported by member Bendigo and Adelaide Bank.
Royal Flying Doctor Service Victoria CEO, Scott Chapman and Committee for Melbourne Director Reverend Ric Holland chaired the meeting, to explore new ways of tackling common challenges facing the sector in collaboration with business.
Former Volunteers Victoria CEO, Sue Noble, shared her insights on the changing nature of volunteering, and the need for a long-term effort that re-positions the value of volunteering in an era of significant change and disruption.
Through a series of meetings and forums slated for 2018, the taskforce’s ambition is to develop a set of guiding principles to define the sector’s Strategic Needs and to inform a 2018 policy and advocacy program.
