Social Enterprise Coalition Roundtable
20 July 2009 at 3:33 pm

The fledgling Social Enterprise Coalition will hold its second Roundtable in Melbourne later this month as it calls for membership to its Leadership Council.

The Coalition has been set up as a leadership vehicle and a voice for social enterprise which is being described in the US as the Fourth Sector – straddling the private for profit, public/ government and Not for Profit sectors.

Leadership Council is looking for two representatives from each of the following areas:

a. cooperatives and mutuals
b. for-profits with a social purpose
c. community sector ventures for a social purpose
d. indigenous businesses and social enterprises
e. rural community businesses and social enterprises
f. environmental businesses and social enterprises
g. consumer empowerment businesses

Expressions of Interest can be sent by email and include the following information:
a. The sector segment you wish to represent;
b. Background information about your social enterprise;
c. A CV or statement about your background and experience in social enterprise; and
d. A statement of no more than 300 words on the issues and challenges facing the social enterprise sector in Australia.

An initial roundtable discussion in Sydney in June explored the role of Coalition and the form it might take. This second roundtable discussion in Melbourne will further this agenda.

The roundtable will take place on:
Wednesday 29 July at Mecu Credit
Union, 222 High St, Kew from
11.00am to 1.00pm.
