The current legislative framework has created a complex not-for-profit environment. Such an environment calls for constant practical support to inspire all stakeholders in this sector. Luckily, there are various forums and activities that bring together all thought leaders under one roof.
This helps the entire sector move in one direction as well as dialogue with the government to improve service delivery. Each of these activities inspires stakeholders to interact as well as gain inspiration from the achievements of others.
Who Should Attend?
Every member of a NPF organisation should attend. However, the cost factor and the time off work required for such events can be a limiting factor. Here is a short list of the members that shouldn’t miss out:
- Executives and other managing partners
- Organisation CFOs and other accounting officers
- Consultants and other practitioners accredited to NPF organisations
- Donors and other private partners
