We are coming up to the last of this year's Members' Forums.  The Members’ Forums are an important focus for VASS as they provide you with the opportunity to connect and develop networks that help you in your work, and to hear from speakers on a wide range of topics.

This year all our Members’ Forums have focussed on the theme ‘Partners in Progress’ and looked at various aspects of how we can design our services for the future and respond to the challenges and changes we face.

Partners in Progress:  Understanding our Impact Forum 22 and 23 October

Waipuna Hotel, 58 Waipuna Rd, Auckland

Our final Partners in Progress Forum for 2013 is shaping up to be a great event, with two days of workshops and learning.

Tuesday 22 October

Creating Micro-Enterprise Workshop, 9.30am – 3.30pm

Tony McLean’s overview of micro-enterprise was such a hit at our regional forums that we’ve decided to work with Imagine Better to offer a more in-depth workshop at Waipuna on 22 October, before the AGM.

The workshop will look at the ‘how to’ of micro-business design and development.  It will provide you with tools and resources as well as the opportunity to begin the planning and design phase for a new venture with an individual.  You will learn about:

· the core components of enterprise design

· how to play to an individual’s strengths

· creating a team of natural supporters to assist

· legal and risk management considerations, and

· how to use this model to support individuals to make progress towards a good life

There are twenty participant places available on a first come first serve basis.

VASS AGM, 4pm – 6pm

As well as the usual AGM business, we are taking the opportunity to have a discussion about what is happening with government tendering for contracts and how we might respond to that.  We hope that as many VASS members as possible will be able to make it.  There’ll be time for some socialising at the conclusion of the meeting, with drinks and nibbles provided.

Wednesday 23 October

Understanding our Impact Forum, 9am – 4pm

What impact does your organisation make? How do you measure this? Where do you start?

If you, like many community organisations, are grappling with these questions then please join us for this forum.

The day has been designed so that participants have the opportunity to:

  • Think about the impact you make as an organisation
  • Better understand the increasing focus on outcomes and outcomes measurement
  • Actively learn about a range of tools and methods that you can use to measure and evaluate your work

All community organisations are welcome to attend.
