Researchers Wanted for ACNC Strategy
Wednesday, 5th September 2012 at 3:57 pm

The Australian Charity and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) Taskforce is looking to connect with academic and Not for Profit researchers to help examine what added value the charity regulator can bring to organisations.

“The ACNC Taskforce is developing its research strategy and is keen to hear from researchers about how it can best fulfil this public education function and support their work,” ACNC Researcher Fiona Tweedie said.

“One option under consideration is establishing a regular forum for engaging people with an interest in research relating to charities and Not for Profits.

“This could take the form of a mailing list, regular meetings, or the establishment of an online community.”

Some of the other possibilities include collaborating on or supporting research projects in various ways (such as providing letters of support, co-authoring, and providing data), assisting to identify areas of research need, such as challenges faced by the sector or knowledge gaps and building stronger links between NFP researchers and Commonwealth government agencies.

The Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission (ACNC) commences on 1 October 2012.

To offer feedback contact Dr Fiona Tweedie, Researcher or Dr Joyce Chia, Senior Policy Officer.
