Event description


Counting What Matters: The size and significance of the New Zealand not-for-profit sector 

Community Research webinars are live events, linking up community sector professionals from multiple locations to share their expertise, and to share evidence of what’s working. This 30-minute, interactive ‘seminar at your desk’ will take place on Google Hangouts on Air.  Places are free of charge. There will be opportunities to ask questions of the presenters as we go.

About this event

Statistics without the yawns!  Ian McLeod (Statistics New Zealand) and Garth Nowland-Foreman (LEAD Centre for Not-for-Profit Leadership) will present the 'Non-Profit Institutions Satellite Account', published June 2016 by Statistics NZ. In this webinar they will:

  • Help you with forecasting and setting long-term strategies, by presenting the big trends currently affecting the not-for-profit sector  

  • Upskill you to describe and advocate for the economic significance of the non-profit sector in New Zealand, and to know the big changes since the 2007 Statistics NZ report

  • Inspire you with illustrious tales of non-profit might and awesomeness.  No really, they've promised...

Who is this webinar for?

If you're a CEO, community leader, not-for-profit manager,researcher or fundraiser who is seeking to gauge the health of civil society in New Zealand, or to benchmark organisations, seek evidence to inform strategy-setting, or to defend the value of your work, this presentation is not to be missed! 

So... what exactly is the 'Non-Profit Institutions Satellite Account'?

The Non-Profit Institutions Satellite Account will detail the number, size, and economic significance of not-for-profit organisations in Aotearoa

  • The first Non-Profit Institutions Satellite Account: 2004 was published in by Statistics New Zealand in 2007. It provided figures for 2004.

  • The second report, called Non-Profit Institutions Satellite Account: 2013, is due to be released in May 2016 and will have figures for 2013, as well as many (but not all) for 2010 - to help give us three points of comparison.

An example of how statistics can be transformed into real-world insights, this set of data compiled by Statistics NZ describes:

  • What type of organisations comprise the not for profit sector in Aotearoa

  • What they are doing

  • How they are funded

  • Who is working in them

Checking your technical setup in advance 

You're advised to test your setup well in advance of the webinar. 

Try any high definition video (like this one) and check the sound and picture.  If you experience any stutters or jerks this just means there’s a problem with your internet connection, or your computer can’t keep up. If you already have broadband (ADSL, VDSL or fibre) then it’s most likely your computer is the problem. To improve the quality of your wifi connection, try connecting your device to your modem with an ethernet cable.
