ACNC hits the road in 2013
21 December 2012
The Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) is touring the country to explain its role and to encourage the not-for-profit sector to provide feedback on how the new regulator intends to use its powers.
The ACNC community presentation program will see the Commission travel to all capital cities as well as Alice Springs, Lismore, Shepparton, Townsville, Launceston and Bunbury in late January and early February 2013.
These face-to-face sessions will give an introduction to the ACNC, as well as the opportunity to participate in two relevant consultations: the ACNC’s regulatory approach consultation and the Government’s consultation on governance standards.
Charities or members of the public wishing to attend can view our community presentations page to access the schedule and download the registration form.
For people who are unable to attend a session but wish to provide feedback on how the ACNC will use their regulatory powers, the ACNC has published a statement for consultation on their website.
Through this consultation, the ACNC hopes to begin a conversation with the charitable sector on the role and work of the Commission and to promote awareness of their general approach to regulation.
The consultation is open until 1 March 2013 and feedback can be made by:
- attending one of the community presentations
- completing an online survey at: www.surveymonkey.com/s/ACNCregulatoryapproach
- calling the ACNC on 13 ACNC (13 2262) on our dedicated consultation phone in day on 20 February 2013
- in writing or via email – see our regulatory approach consultation page for the templates for these submissions.
More information on the government’s consultation on governance standards for the not-for-profit sector is available from the Treasury website. This consultation will close on 15 February 2013.
