CCA CEO David Crosbie shares an extract from his opening statement before the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security inquiry into the Foreign Influence Transparency Scheme Bill, and why the CCA are concerned the proposed legislation could impose new administrative and compliance requirements on charities in Pro Bono News, 1 Feb 2018.

This submission to the Joint Standing Committee on Electoral Matters outlines key areas of concern for the Community Council for Australia (CCA) in relation to changes to the Electoral Legislation Amendment (Electoral Funding and Disclosure Reform) Bill 2017.

CCA CEO David Crosbie tells Pro Bono News that “Any doubt about the intention of the new ACNC commissioner to impose an ill-conceived restrictive agenda on all charities can now be dispelled with the ACNC submission into their review. The proposed new objects alone should be a wake-up call to every charity in Australia.

We should never underestimate the importance of collective voices writes CEO David Crosbie in Pro Bono News, as he sets a challenge for charities to be more active in 2018.

CCA encourages all in the charities and not-for-profit sector and the communites we serve to take an interest in the five year Review of the ACNC legislation.  CCA is preparing a submission in consultation with members.
