7.15am - Buffet Breakfast and networking
7:30am - Welcome
7:35am - Business acquisition - an option for the NFP sector? Vicki Sykes.
A recent accounting report on the NFP sector shows that funding continues to be the primary concern for NFP organisations. Interestingly the survey also shows greater difficulty in finding new and reliable sources of funding, and at the same time a decreased willingness to take risks with new enterprises. Vicki Sykes will share with us her findings from the research she completed in 2015 on business acquisition in the NFP sector.
8:35am - AGM
Elections of Conveners, Suggestions for 2017
9:00am - Meeting concludes

Presenter: Vicki Sykes

Vicki is currently a self-employed consultant and director. Until 2015 she has been Chief Executive of Friendship House in Manukau for 17 years, and it was in that time that she explored other options for creating revenue in the NFP sector. She has experience with NFPs of various sizes in both governance and management roles, and will also offer some thoughts on how accountants and financial advisors can help or hinder the funding processes in NFPs.

RSM is not presenting or organising this meeting, however we are sharing in case of value. If you need further advice, we suggest you contact CA ANZ directly.
