Each year Third Sector gathers the who’s who in the not-for-profit (NFP) sector enabling a unique opportunity for leadership, education and knowledge sharing with Australia’s leading sector executives and decision makers.

This year we have rebranded from Expo to LIVE to reflect on other elements of the event, as Third Sector LIVE is not only an expo, but also a platform to share challenges, achievements and opportunities with those in the sector.

Themed ‘Getting Down to Business’, we want delegates to walk away informed, challenged and inspired to enhance their own personal careers and or the powerful work of the NFP community.

The Goodwill Opportunity Campus (map)

2017 Community Conversions Speaker Series, Charlotte, NC. This event is by invitation only. 

Goodwill Industries was founded in 1902 in Boston by Reverend Edgar J. Helms, a Methodist minister and early social innovator. Helms started Goodwill with the idea that people could earn a living repairing and selling donated goods. His business model was rooted in the philosophy that a job was better than a handout. “Not charity, but a chance,” he always said. Helms began his mission going door to door with burlap bags asking wealthy Boston residents to donate clothing. He then hired and trained people in need—many of whom were considered unemployable because they had disabilities—to repair, mend and clean the donated items so that they could be sold in thrift stores. The movement flourished and the Goodwill method of helping people earn employment was born.

Goodwill Industries of the Southern Piedmont opened its doors in 1965 as an independent Goodwill affiliate agency with fewer than 20 employees. Today we are proud to be a 21st century leader in regional workforce development and employer of more than 1,100 people. Thanks to your donations throughout the years, we have provided critical employment services to more than 150,000 individuals and business partners in the greater Charlotte region, while creating stable jobs for clients with multiple barriers to employment. Our territory spans an 18-county area in the Carolinas, including Anson, Cabarrus, Cleveland, Gaston, Lincoln, Mecklenburg, Montgomery, Polk, Richmond, Rutherford, Scotland, Stanly and Union counties in North Carolina and Chester, Chesterfield, Lancaster, Marlboro and York counties in South Carolina.

Pennsylvania Convention Center (map)

Annual conference, Philadelphia, PA. This event is open to NBMBAA members and MBMBAA corporate and university partners. You can register for the conferenc here

NBMBAA® was conceived in 1970 and for early members – Blacks coming into the corporate sector, largely for the first time – it was a way to share experiences and insights to help make a difficult journey easier. By nurturing these new professionals, the organization helped early members navigate and, ultimately, succeed in unfamiliar and frequently hostile environments. It is those professionals who have risen up and reached back to bring up the next generation of Black business professionals. This has carried through the decades as the members who have followed found the same sense of connection and camaraderie among their colleagues, and have continued to reach back to uplift new generations.

The Providence St. Joseph Health family includes:

Bringing these organizations together is a reflection of each of our unique missions, increasing access to health care and bringing quality, compassionate care to those we serve, with a focus on those most in need. By coming together, Providence St. Joseph Health has the potential to seek greater affordability, achieve outstanding and reliable clinical care, improve the patient experience and introduce new services where they are needed most.

The founders of both organizations were courageous women ahead of their time. The Sisters of Providence and the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange brought health care and other social services to the American West when it was still a rugged, untamed frontier. Now, as we face a different landscape – a changing health care environment – we draw upon their pioneering and compassionate spirit to plan for the next century of health care.
