Registrations Open for Power of Community Conference

On 21 November, grassroots organisations will come together for the Power of Community Conference — and you’re invited.

The Power of Community Conference celebrates and builds on the impact our community organisations are having across Queensland. Grassroots organisations have a long history of bringing about positive social change, connecting people and building stronger, more resilient communities.

To celebrate this, and as part of its 25th anniversary celebrations, the Queensland Government’s Gambling Community Benefit Fund (GCBF) and QUT’s Australian Centre for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Studies (ACPNS) are partnering to present the 2019 Power of Community Conference.

With a focus on creating change at a local level, the program will be a combination of presentations from nonprofit experts, including the importance of storytelling, how to attract grants, when and how to innovate and the importance of resilience and wellbeing and hands-on roundtables and workshops on four key areas including marketing, fundraising, volunteer management and governance.

The day will include

  • Inspiring presentations by nonprofit leaders who are experts in their fields
  • Interactive roundtables aimed at sharpening your communication and storytelling skills
  • Workshops designed to build your skills in marketing, fundraising, volunteer management and governance
  • Real-world, practical strategies and advice you can put into practice immediately
  • Networking opportunities with like-minded colleagues and sector leaders
  • Entry to a prize draw where the winner receives one-on-one mentoring from nonprofit experts
  • Access to organisations and businesses supporting nonprofits via the expo which will be running between sessions
  • Continued engagement post the conference with webinar series.

The cost to attend this full-day event is just $47 per person. Only one person per organisation is invited to attend. This will allow a variety of organisations to attend and provides a great networking opportunity.
