Newsletterfor people involved in the social sector
Lunchtime at the Kollective we learnt how to organise our phones with Bryan Winters. He had people putting icons in folders, creating widgets and learning about launchers and many other useful apps.
Have you checked out our resource on governance yet? You will find all the answers to your queries. And soon we plan to add a new module that will help you to recruit new board members. Or if you’re looking for a board position you can find one here too.
Do you fully understand your financials? or are you like many and as long as the bottom line is black, then there’s nothing more you can do.
What about cashflow?
What is a balance sheet?
How do I know if we’ll survive the year? How do I do put a budget together?
Are you scrabbling from one month to the next?
How about trying a planned approach?
2 short sessions that will build your knowledge and better equip you to manage your organisation’s finances.
Tuesday 25 June and Monday 8 July – 9am – 12noon

2019 SociaLink “Legacy Trust ‘Art With Purpose’ Award” – ‘Opening the blinds on The Real Life Of Us’
SociaLink has produced a series of research reports and videos to raise awareness of social issues in the Western Bay of Plenty and to better understand the social sector. The theme for the launch of this research is ‘Opening the blinds on The Real Life Of Us’. Creative Bay of Plenty, SociaLink and Legacy Trust are collaborating to seek an artwork to visually reflect the research and videos to help change societal perceptions and stigma by raising awareness of people in vulnerable circumstances as well as the value of social sector providers.
In conjunction with the launch of this new research, CBOP and SociaLink are launching The SociaLink “Legacy Trust ‘Art With Purpose’ Award”. Artists are being called to submit a design for an art installation which will help raise awareness of the issues identified in the research.
The artist with the winning design concept will receive $500 to create the installation or artwork (which will be unveiled at the SociaLink launch event on the 9th August 2019) and presented on the day with $1000 cash prize. Following the launch, the installation will also be on display in other areas around the Western Bay of Plenty, sharing its message.

Study of Governance in New Zealand
Massey People, Organisation, Work and Employment Research (MPOWER) Group researchers are studying the nature, opportunities for and challenges of governance roles in New Zealand through surveys in the following four sectors: charities, further education, higher education, and sports. Findings from the surveys will be aggregated and reported in research outputs. We will also compare the New Zealand survey findings with those from the same surveys conducted across c. 40 countries by our research colleagues at Henley Business School in the UK.
