Why join?

Join QSEC to support the Social Enterprise sector and to have a voice about the future development of the Sector in Queensland.

 

We have two kinds of membership

Social Enterprise Members are member organisations of QSEC which trade to support a social purpose, and are able to take full advantage of the benefits offered by the Council. Social Enterprise Members have voting rights and may be nominated as members of the management committee.

Associate Members are organisations and individuals which do not fall into the above category, and are encouraged to join QSEC to participate actively in the community, stay in touch with developments and support the objectives of QSEC. Associates do not hold voting rights.

Listing and verification: Both Associate and Social Enterprise members are able to submit a listing for display in QSEC’s directory showcasing their services and activities. After application, Social Enterprise members are encouraged to submit documents to become Verified Social Enterprises, increasing their interest to procurement buyers.Becvome
