Not for Profits that invest in the quality of their interactions within both their existing communities and their potential communities, have little to fear from disruption, CEO of Community Council for Australia, David Crosbie writes in Pro Bono News.

In October and December 2015, CCA staged a major campaign to promote more robust discussion of mergers and collaborations. The campaign included a series of national forums and the report is a record of the discussion and feedback.

The focus of the forums was the #GoodSave case study presentation by Jayne Meyer Tucker who outlined the ideas and practicalities that drove the merger of Good Beginnings Australia and Save the Children Australia.

Introduction

This Community Council for Australia (CCA) submission briefly outlines some of the key issues for Australia’s not-for-profit sector in response to the Productivity Commission Inquiry Into Introducing Competition And Informed User Choice Into Human Services and the associated discussion paper.  It has been prepared with CCA members (see listing of CCA members, Attachment 1) as well as other key organisations working in the broader not-for-profit sector.  

CCA held this event before the 2016 Federal election to get views of major party candidates on what they plan to do if elected to ensure a flourishing not-for-profit sector.
