This seminar aims to support community organisations to build their capability in identifying and managing their own organisational risk through improved financial acumen.This includes understanding the importance of quality governance structures, financial reporting, business planning, and risk management.

The focus of the seminar is to take a strategic lens to budgeting and financial monitoring and decision-making processes in community organisations.
