Managing a Community Organisation in Australia 6th Edition (2019)

This handbook is for board of management members and staff. It provides an understanding of the workings and legislative framework in which not for profit community organisations operate. It also provides a focus on the role and responsibilities of boards of management and their members. Areas covered include:

  • Incorporation
  • Information for Employers
  • Policy and Procedures
  • Board of Management
  • Terms and Conditions of Employment
  • Delivering a Service
  • Understanding Government Funding
  • Staff Recruitment
  • Financial Management
  • Taxation for Community Organisations
  • Staff Management and Development
  • Meetings
  • Risk Management and Insurance
  • Planning Your Service
  • Office Management

The Handbook has been updated to 2019 legislative requirements, the vast majority of which are now Commonwealth requirements. Where State or Territory requirements apply (e.g. incorporation), we have included Western Australia as an example. The underlying principles are very similar across all States and Territories.

The Manual includes examples of forms and numerous checklists to assist in improving the operations of your service. Since its first printing in 1995, the handbook has assisted thousands of community organisations in Australia and has been used extensively in community work and related courses.
