HALIFAX, June 13, 2014 /CNW/ - Hundreds of non-profit staff will meet
June 16-17 for a conference in Dartmouth exploring the contributions
made by non-profit groups, as well as the challenges facing the sector.
Panel discussions, keynote speakers and workshops at A Different Kind of Profit: Social Impact of the Non-Profit Sector will cover topics ranging from how non-profits contribute to Nova
Scotia's new economy, social enterprise, and diversifying the sector.
The Nova Scotia Commission on Building Our New Economy calls for a
co-operative effort to create meaningful employment in all corners of
our province. "There is much talk these days of business start-ups and
modernizing traditional industries," says Kathleen Flanagan, Executive
Director of the Community Sector Council, "but while we hear a lot
about the business and government sectors, there's a third sector that
employs 5% of Nova Scotia's workforce - the non-profit sector."
Non-profit organizations in Nova Scotia employ around 24,000 people.
They also contribute to the healthy and welcoming society needed to
attract businesses and immigrants, and to retain younger workers.
Experienced non-profit executives are available to the media to talk
about non-profit organizations, and how the sector can contribute to
Nova Scotia's social and economic well-being now and into the future.
