COMMUNITY COUNCIL FOR AUSTRALIA

We are an independent member-based peak body dedicated to building flourishing communities by enhancing the extraordinary work of Australia’s not-for-profit sector. We do this by changing the way governments, communities and the not-for-profit sector relate to one another.In particular, this includes establishing a regulatory environment that works for community organisations - not against them. Find out more...

The first Australia We Want report, to be released next week, will set some very import benchmarks towards measuring our progress, but with a challenge to move beyond imagining and start creating a better Australia, writes CEO of Community Council for Australia David Crosbie in Pro Bono News.

It’s here.  It’s time.  We can create the Australia we want – if we are up to the challenge and the vision that leaders from across the charities sector set at the first AusWeWant Roundtable.

Tim Costello, David Crosbie and the CCA Board and membership hope that you will join us at the National Press Club and help launch The Australia We Want, First Report.

 

CCA is pleased to announce that the successful CFO Forums we hosted previously are returning.

The financial, regulatory and political context has developed significantly since our last CFO Forum, with many members experiencing both cost pressures and an even greater need to innovate and better understand the financial challenges ahead. The return of these forums will provide a great opportunity for finance executives to: contribute to policy; meet ministers; share ideas; and engage in dialogue.
