Wendy Prowse, Deputy Director of ACTCOSS and member of SIMNA Committee, ACT Chapter – Introduction and welcome
Admir Meko – ‘Outcome Measurement across Community Services Sector: Experience from Other Jurisdictions and Current Context of the ACT’.
Admir is a Research Project Officer with ACTCOSS and recently has undertaken research on how common outcome measurement tools and frameworks can be applied across services. While his work is focused on the changes that Purchasing Framework will bring to outcome reporting in the ACT community sector, this presentation will offer an overview of how similar initiatives/approaches are implemented in other states/territories.
Ray Shannon – ‘Incorporating Outcome Measurement at the Project Level – Marymea’ Mulch Program. Ray is the Director of Corporate Services with the organisation and will talk about their intention and vision of using this approach in a social enterprise project of Marymead. Although the process is still in the early stages, he has a lot to say about the pathways the process has followed and what they seek to achieve in the mid-long term.
Q&A – both speakers will engage in Q&A with the audience.
This promises to be an engaging and informative event. So, come along, learn, question and share your knowledge.
