The community services industry is currently experiencing significant change and reform.  It is at these times of uncertainty that senior decision makers across the community sector need to come together to influence this change collaboratively.

Sector Connect has been facilitating a bimonthly Managers Network since 2005 but this structure in the current climate cannot adequately enable strategic action to occur.  Therefore during 2016 the Managers Network changed to a bimonthly Leadership Network with breakout working party groups as required. The aim is to more effectively work with senior Managers across the region to effect change.


Terms of Reference Leadership Network


The purpose of this network is:

  • Professional development
  • Consultations
  • To enable the Leadership Network Executive to keep abreast of regional issues and needs
  • To develop skills and engage in collaboration and regional planning
  • To engage in a coordinated approach to regional information exchange, policy, program and service delivery issues affecting the region
  • To improve and sustain the community services industry across Macarthur and Wingecarribee
  • To engage services in funding reforms, new trends, development and innovation within the sector

This purpose will be achieved by:

  • Holding standalone bimonthly meetings focused on particular topics
  • Workshops, forums and other professional development opportunities
  • Needs assessments, consultations and key discussions on regional issues to inform planning and advocacy
  • Involvement in campaigns, resource development and forums as identified by the Executive


Membership is open to workers from across the Macarthur and Wingecarribee region that have managerial or strategic responsibilities in their work.  Senior managers may also delegate a member of their management team to attend.
