Blueprint Expert Reference Group Meeting Communiqué Wednesday, 8 November 2023

The Blueprint Expert Reference Group met virtually on Wednesday 8 November 2023.

The Blueprint Expert Reference Group is inviting input and feedback on the Not-for-Profit Sector Development Blueprint Issues Paper which was released on DSS Engage on 1 November 2023.

The Issues Paper is the basis for broad consultation on the development of a Not-for-profit Sector Development Blueprint. The Blueprint Expert Reference Group is keen to hear from a range of organisations to receive diverse input for consideration.

The Issues Paper outlines the principles and priorities of a national blueprint for Australia’s not-for-profit sector. Questions are posed at the end of each priority area inviting feedback to inform development of the Not-for-Profit Sector Development Blueprint.

The Not-for-Profit Blueprint Vision Summary is also on DSS Engage. It sets out early thinking about the key qualities and priority areas for the future not-for-profit sector. A number of questions are included for consideration by readers as part of the opportunity to provide input.

Not-for-profit sector organisations and the broader public are invited to submit input and feedback until 20 December 2023. All input received will inform the development of the Blueprint, which will provide a strategic vision for the not-for-profit sector over the next 10 years.

Blueprint Expert Reference Group members will host 2 virtual forums in November 2023 to discuss key qualities and priority actions to consider in the development of the Not-for-Profit Sector Development Blueprint. You can register for the virtual forums via DSS Engage:

  • 9 November 2023, 2:00 – 3:00pm AEDT
  • 29 November 2023, 09:00 – 10:00am AEDT
