Not-For-Profits… have we got news for you?
As always, there seems to be a lot happening in the Not-For-Profit space. Here’s an update from a few of our friends… enjoy!
One size does not fit all!
Associations Matter: State of the Sector Report Released
The results are in! Survey Matters analysed 7,749 responses to produce a robust report specific to the Australian and New Zealand professional association sector.
Some of the key findings included:
- A stable or increasing demand for professional associations is predicted by an overwhelming majority of members
- “One size does not fit all” was a dominant message that came out of the results. There is a definite need for clear segmentation in the way that professional associations deliver their messages to members
Have your say! Take part in this year’s BDO Not-For-Profit Fraud Survey
For ten years, the BDO Not-For-Profit Fraud Survey has acted as a valuable benchmark for not-for-profit organisations, with the results providing important insight into the perception and level of fraud in the sector.
The survey will take you approximately 25 minutes to complete and will close on 31 October 2013. Even if your organisation has never experienced a fraud, your approach to managing the risk could provide valuable insight to others in the sector.
