A collection of papers from the 12th Biennial conference of Australia and New Zealand Third Sector Research (ANZTSR).
This conference was held at Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology, on 18-20 November 2014. Conference website here.
As it recovered from one of the most destructive earthquakes in memory, Christchurch learned about change and resilience. In the context of this widespread political and societal change, this conference asked ‘How can the ‘Third Sector’ maintain its integrity and be a force for positive change?’
The Conference was organised by a local organizing committee, comprising:
Garth Nowland-Foreman (ANZTSR Board, Community Research Board and Unitec Senior Lecturer), Kim Chamberlain (Consultant, formerly with Ministry of Social Development), Ruth Gardner (Manager, Volunteering Canterbury), Tony Milne (National Manager of Public Health, Problem Gambling Foundation), Mary Richardson (Executive Officer, Christchurch Methodist Mission), Sandy Thompson (Not for Profit Programme Leader, Unitec NZ), and Sharon Torstonson (Executive Officer, Christchurch Council of Social Services)
The Committee was assisted by Lani Evans (Thankyou Payroll and Malcam Charitable Trust)
