INCE08 - Brave New World


The 5th International Not-for-profit Convention and Exhibition (INCE) offers three days of professional development and peer-networking.

Catering to all levels of not-for-profit expertise, from novice to seen-it-all, INCE has become renowned for its practical solutions-based program together with a blend of national and international not-for-profit leaders addressing the key issues in the sector.

In a return to the raw basics, this year's streams focus on challenges and solutons in: Governance, Management, Membership, Marketing, Leadership and Revenue.  Getting this mix of issues right means not-for-profit nirvana is not too far away...

With a new commonwealth government, numerous enquiries, and the threat of recession, the stars are aligning for what appears to be some tough times ahead.

INCE08 will enable you to face these impending challenges with the tools, techniques, networks and contacts to secure yourself against the risks posed by the Brave New World that is looming over the not-for-profit horizon.

The Streams

This stream focuses on the core governance areas including the role of board members, communicating with your board, conceptual thinking and communication, the change management principles needed to build an effective board and 'best practices' in not-for-profit governance.

A key leader who can develop, implement and maintain an inspiring vision is the key to a successful not-for-profit organisation. This stream will address issues within the broad areas of developing strategy, implementing ideas and managing outcomes.

Members provide a steady stream of income, credibility for lobbying, and a pool of people pre-disposed to be interested in your services or in volunteering. This stream covers the core theories of membership marketing, as well as recruitment and retention.

The process of identifying and understanding your target market and delivering what they need in a sustainable manner is the essence of marketing. This stream addresses topics such as segmentation and targeting, product and process development, building partnerships, pricing, promotion, and communications.

Solid management is one of the foundation elements of a strong organisation. In this stream we will address human resources, industrial relations, finance and strategic administration.

Many not-for-profits rely on donations, contributions, and volunteers. Sourcing and effective use of these resources is a critical factor in the sustainability of all charities, associations and community groups. This stream addresses revenue generation, sponsorship and corporate partnerships.
