The NonProfit Alliance (NPA) is delighted to have been accepted as a Member of the Social Enterprise Council of NSW & ACT (SECNA).

SECNA is a member-led peak body that represents the interests of social entrepreneurs and social enterprises across New South Wales and Australian Capital Territory. Its purpose is to raise social enterprise awareness and understanding, build a connected social enterprise ecosystem and advocate to Government.

It’s our belief that to do this, social purpose organisations need to invest in the capabilities of their leaders, and those who will be leading their organisations into the future.

“Since inception, NPA has – and will always continue to – reinvest a significant percentage of profits into NFP leadership development through full and partial scholarships and our leadership programs and tools like the newly launched Goal Tracker App. We’re looking forward to playing our part in supporting SECNA’s strategic goals to further develop the social enterprise sector for lasting public benefit,” said Carmel Molloy, NPA’s CEO and co-founder.
