After years of speculation, the Federal Government has finally released its highly anticipated response to the ACNC Legislation Review. Twenty-one of the thirty recommendations of the independent review panel have been accepted, meaning sweeping changes are likely on the horizon.

How will your organisation be impacted and what should you be doing now to prepare? Our 2020 Charities and NFP conference provides delegates with a unique opportunity to hear directly from ACNC Commissioner Dr Gary Johns, as well as ACNC Legislation Review panel member Dr Matthew Turnour, on the practical impacts of these reforms for the sector.
