Collective Impact, Working together to grow microfinance
This year we celebrate the 35th anniversary of NILS in Victoria. We have come a long way and have built a NILS brand product that has assisted thousands of Victorians. It is a great time to reflect to see where we are going. Our theme for this years’ Forum is the way forward for the next 12 months Collective Impact, Working together to grow microfinance. We will have an opportunity to reflect on the past years performance, review future direction of the NILS services in the State and workshop ways to improve the level of service and to extend our reach by working better together as a network. This will include both the strategic direction of NILS and the operational aspects of our service.
Our partners and funders, the National Australia Bank, Centrelink, Government representatives, The Good Guys and other agencies will join us for this Forum.
