Getting governance and accountability right in the not-for-profit sector conference 2012

Information about the 2012 Not-for-profit sector conference.

22–23 November 2012

Nothing is as constant in today’s environment as change. The not-for-profit sector is especially affected by increased requirements for accountability, changes to financial reporting and auditing arrangements, and the wider policy environment.

Board members and senior managers are challenged as to how best to respond to these changes. CAGTR's inaugural conference for the not-for-profit sector provides an opportunity to link into leading-edge thinking and share experiences around these issues. It offers:

  • A conference within a conference (Day 1) which will have broad appeal. This afternoon of sessions on Thursday 22 November provides an opportunity for those involved in both governance and management of not-for-profit organisations to grapple with governance issues and keep abreast of the changing regulatory and legal environments which affect governance.
  • The full conference is particularly targeted at those who manage small and medium sized not-for-profit organisations with an emphasis on those who have finance oversight or responsibilities. Day 2 provides you with an opportunity to engage in greater depth with governance and accountability issues including the forthcoming changes in financial reporting requirements, reporting on the difference your organisation makes, and surviving and thriving (including tips on how to undertake a health check).
  • Not-for-profit organisations seldom consider tax, although it can have a huge impact. Minister of Revenue Hon Peter Dunne joins us on Day 2 to discuss the wider policy issues relevant to the not-for-profit sector.
  • Presenters at this conference cover the wide spectrum of the not-for-profit Sector including charities, social service providers, sports organisations, advocacy organisations, and umbrella groups.
