The Board Report

The Board Report features news and information that you and your board need to have read – in one curated monthly report.

If you read every News Service edition Pro Bono Australia writes, you will understand the big issues and know about the events occurring in Australia’s social economy. We know that most people don’t have time to read every News Service, nor do you have time to share the information with key stakeholders. That is where our The Board Report comes in.

Each month our Managing Editor will curate key content from our thrice weekly News Services into one beautifully designed, easy to read document that you’re welcome to circulate.

“List a review of The Board Report as a regular item on your Board Agenda. It is a low-cost, efficient way to keep up to date and generate quality conversations about issues and trends impacting your sector.”
— Kerry Mayne, GM Public Sector Engagement, CPA Australia

The Board Report is the resource CEOs, Senior Executives and Board Members read to ensure they are across the myriad of issues and happenings in the dynamic and changing community sector.

For many years Pro Bono Australia has been the authority in the sector when it comes to news.

As many of you know, Pro Bono Australia has been tracking the emerging social economy since 2001. We write close to 200 articles a month and have over 12,000 articles archived on our site that are regularly used as a record of sector development and as a resource for media, researchers, policy makers and others interested in social issues.

Our highly qualified journalists write day-in and day-out exclusively for Pro Bono Australia. They know the subtleties and histories behind current issues and can spot the important new trends as they emerge. That’s why our News Services have a readership of over 400,000 people annually.

We have the ability to curate and inform on sector issues like no other.

I just wanted to say how much I enjoy the Pro Bono articles and how valuable they are in keeping people up to date with 'current affairs'. Reading the Board Report prompted me to write to you and say so. The Board Report in particular has an excellent journalistic way of conveying the most important facts quickly and succinctly - which we all need in our busy lives in which we're trying to serve others. Thank you to you and your team
