Better Hearing Australia (BHA), Canberra is a not for profit association ABN: 62 754 263 674 supporting those in our community with a progressive hearing loss: before, during and after its onset. We seek a future beyond that of a member service organisation, and plan to achieve a community wide reach for our services.
BHA has historically relied upon committee members taking up executive roles. Now, this business model is out of step with the modern Charity best practice. A new management structure and operational mode needs to be installed, and funded through its transition to office.
1. Part -Time Paid Executive - A professional part time paid executive is now the preferred model for NFP governance oversight. BHA and other charities have a ‘duty of care’ to employ competent and experienced executives.
In the transition to a business like approach, extra funds will be needed to engage suitable staff.
Approx $ 70,000 is needed for this purpose.
2. NFP Business Training - Part of the charitable ‘duty of care’ is to provide business management education, training, and experience to part time staff and volunteers. Commitment has been made for a training budget of $ 12,000 for NFP management training administered by the respected institution the Institute of Community Directors Australia.
3. IT Infrastructure and technology renewal- A modern NFP has an essential commitment to social media platforms and services. Systems and infrastructure must be up to date, well maintained, and supported by appropriated processes and systems
