How to Generate Solutions in the NFP Sector

IMG_7392IMG_7392

If you are a board director today, you are probably considering issues such as funding models, impact measurement, talent attraction and retention, mergers and acquisitions and how to deal with increasing levels of inequality in society.
 
Recently it was shown in the WA Not for Profit Landscape Report that the WA’s charities sector employs 7% of the state’s workforce – three times as many workers as agriculture, forestry and fishing put together, and just behind manufacturing at 7.4% and mining at 8%.
 
With these new realisations, do we need to re-imagine what the NFP sector might look like in 10 years time?  What could it achieve? What is it’s purpose? And how do we effectively achieve this?
 
The 14th March Unconvention titled ‘The Future of Board Leadership’ will feature Adam Jorlen, a futurist and Co-founder of Enkel, a group that inspire, support and engage changemakers.  Enkel believes new approaches and more people are needed to address the problems of today and tomorrow so they are focused on creating a new generation of changemakers.   An ambition very closely aligned to the vision and mission of ‘Engaging Young Leaders on Aged Care and Community Boards’ – creating a new generation of board directors.
 
The Unconvention will also host a Q&A panel with young dynamic board directors including Lockie Cooke, former ICEA CEO and EY Social Entrepreneur of the Year 2015 and Krista McMeeken who is on the boards of Celebrate WA, Museum for Freedom and Tolerance (WA) and the Western Australian Aboriginal Advisory Council. Krista was inducted into the Western Australian Women’s Hall of Fame in 2011 and awarded the Human Rights Awards Young People’s Medal in 2012. She was also listed in the Australian Financial Review and Westpac’s 100 Women of Influence Young Leader category in 2013.  Wow !! What a line up!
 
We are also fortunate to have Paula Rogers join the panel, who has had a diverse range of experiences in the corporate and not for  profit sectors and now leads the CEDA WA team as State Director, as well as Steve Joske, who is Executive Director for Red Cross WA and Chair of WACOSS.  Get your questions ready for this panel!
 
The vivacious and ever thought provoking, Justine Colyer, CEO of Rise, will be joining us later in the morning to talk about Rise’s recent experience in some very successful mergers and acquisitions.   It seems there is a new major merger in the news nearly everyday in the not for profit sector.  Is it the answer to the increased challenges of consumer directed care and support, sustainability and technology?
 
So whether you’re a seasoned board director or aspiring to sit on a community board, this Unconvention is an opportunity to share with others, learn from others and in a sense, work backwards!   What we mean is, what is our desired ideal future for the not for profit sector and then how do we work backwards from there to achieve it today.  Hope to see you there.
