ABOUT AROCSA About AROCSA Africa in the 21st century faces many challenges, but it has incredibly valuable opportunities as well, requiring the attention and collaborative action of scholars and researchers, practitioners in civil society, business, and policymakers alike. The Association for Research on Civil Society in Africa (AROCSA) seeks to create a platform for meaningful engagement of these and other stakeholders, with the goal of knowledge generation and dissemination on civil society by African scholars and practitioners, reflecting global excellence standards and propelling development on the continent. AROCSA was founded in September 2015 in Accra, Ghana, under the auspices of the Association for Research on NonProfit Organizations and Voluntary Action (ARNOVA), to promote and advance a community of excellence in research and practice on civil society in the service of African development. There are multiple, stand-alone efforts to encourage research and knowledge-sharing on the ‘third sector’ globally, and this is evident in the existence of various organizations, conferences, academic journals etc. in various parts of the world. In Africa, the contemporary complexities of governance and relationships between sectors – public, private, non-profit, and academia -- has led to the rise in the relevance of civil society and the citizen sector in general. It is therefore crucial to have a continent-wide organization that will serve as the bedrock of advancing knowledge and practice in the area of civil societies in Africa. This is why AROCSA was set up. AROCSA will operate in the five areas listed below: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. The creation of a fund to support research and scholarship on civil society in Africa An annual conference bringing together scholars and practitioners for networking, learning, and skills-building A regional academic journal focused on African civil society Fellowships for doctoral students and civil society professionals Training for scholars and civil society organization (CSO) staff on applied research methods and evidence-based work. The work of AROCSA is guided by three core values: 1. INTEGRITY a. We value and practice accountability, transparency and professionalism b. We value and work with courage of conviction c. We strive for the highest ethics, being intellectually and materially honest d. We are non-partisan and non-sectarian in our positions and actions 2. EXCELLENCE (IN SCHOLARSHIP & PRACTICE) a. We promote rigorous, high-quality research and practice b. We aspire to be globally competitive 3. DIVERSITY & INCLUSION a. We acknowledge, embrace and accommodate diversity b. We are intentional in including people and ideas from multiple demographic backgrounds c. We maintain and sustain democratic principles d. We are pan-generational, gender-sensitive, multilingual, community-focused, pan-African, and tolerant towards multiple viewpoints AROCSA is currently registered as a 501(c)3 organization in the United States of America and Nigeria. While the initial group of founding members comes largely from West Africa, AROCSA’s membership will be continent-wide and will seek to build bridges across the entire continent of Africa. Page 2

ABOUT ARNOVA About ARNOVA The Association for Research on Nonprofit Organizations and Voluntary Action (ARNOVA) is the U.S.-based, national and international association that connects scholars, teachers, and practice leaders interested in research on nonprofit organizations, voluntary action, philanthropy and civil society. Founded in 1971 as the Association of Voluntary Action Scholars, ARNOVA is a neutral, open forum committed to strengthening the research about and helping shape better practice in these realms. We bring together both theoretical and applied interests, helping scholars gain insight into the day-to-day concerns of third-sector organizations, while providing nonprofit professionals with connections to research they can use to improve the work of their organizations and the quality of life for citizens and communities. Principal activities include an annual conference, publications, electronic discussions and special interest groups. ARNOVA’s Goals 1. Build, improve, disseminate, and promote recognition of knowledge on nonprofit organizations, philanthropy, civil society, and voluntary action. 2. Create an integrated set of programs and activities that support effective education in nonprofit organizations, philanthropy, civil society and voluntary action. 3. Manage ARNOVA’s operations so that they are exemplary with respect to strong governance, financial stability, and responsiveness to members. 4. Attract and retain individuals from under-represented groups into all aspects of ARNOVA’s governance, programming, and membership in order to insure that ARNOVA is and continues to be a diverse organization. The Basics of Membership ARNOVA is the association that links persons who have primary professional interests in research on and teaching about philanthropy, nonprofits, voluntary action and civil society. It is the community to be a part of if you want to know what is going on with research and teaching related to these topics or fields. We support, encourage, expand and disseminate this work with and on behalf of scholars, teachers and practice leaders across North America and around the world. For the last two decades, ARNOVA has been a growing Association that played a key role in building the work and service of research and teaching around voluntary, nonprofit and philanthropic organizations. We have contributed significantly to the growing understanding of the significance and impact of work of these organizations and activities for building healthier societies. We aspire to help create increased knowledge and develop a new cohort of researchers, teachers, and practice leaders to move this vital work forward. Our Members ARNOVA members come from a variety of backgrounds and affiliations, ranging from colleges, universities, centers, and foundations to various nonprofit organizations. 75% of our members identify as academics while 25% identify as practitioners. As the leading scholarly network in the world, one-third of our members are outside of the U.S. ARNOVA also provides several opportunities for networking, mentorship and professional development to our student members, who make up approximately 33% of our membership base. ARNOVA & AROCSA ARNOVA has received a grant from the Ford Foundation to help create a similar network in Africa. Through this grant we convened African scholars, practitioners and policy-makers interested in the nonprofit/civil society sector in Accra, Ghana in 2015. This was followed by a meeting of these scholars at the ARNOVA Annual Conference in Chicago, Illinois on November 18 – 21, 2015. This group identified the need to create collaborative networks amongst scholars, practitioners and policymakers committed to research in this sector. This founding group help establish the Association for Research on Civil Society in Africa (AROCSA). AROCSA has been registered in USA and received 501(c)(3) tax exempt status and is currently being registered in Africa. Page 3

Meeting program Thursday, May 19th, 2016 The Impact Of New Technologies On Pracademics: Iris Research And Practices In CSOs The aim of this session is to examine the increasing adoption and use of technological tools in the day to day businesses of civil society organizations and the impact this has on both research and practice. Participants will explore the type and nature of technological tools available for use by CSOs and the likely challenges that such technologies may pose to the work of CSOs. Participants are expected to relate their success stories or challenges in the use of new technologies to both research and practice. Speakers: Mr. Fidelis Ndeh-Che Ms. Celestine Kakai Dr. Hector Cordeo-Guzman Moderator: Dr. Seidu Alidu 13:30 - 15:00  13:30 - 15:00  Mentoring CSOs: Sharing Ideas and Best Practices Australia The session focuses on providing practical information to new and emerging CSOs as well as other CSOs that are interested in strengthening their respective organisations. It will provide practical tips on strategic and cost effective approaches that will enhance the impact, reach, visibility, relevance, profile and sustainability of the CSO activities. Topics to be discussed include the following: Tips for starting up an NGO, project conceptualisation and idea formulation, CSO governance issues, accountability, funds generation, constituency building, staff retention, assessment and tracking of impact, CSO-government partnership, etc. Speakers: Dr. Uju Agomoh Mrs. Josephine Chukwuma Mrs. Hannah Forster Moderator: Mr. John Harvey Corruption In Africa: Historical & Contemporary Antarctica Strategies For CSOs Combatting Corruption This breakout session seeks to discuss corruption in Africa including the diverse strategies employed by CSO’s to combat the practice. Presenters will shed light on the nature, dynamics and impact of corruption in the continent and the effectiveness of both historical and contemporary strategies employed by CSOs in tackling corruption. Corruption has over the years been pervasive and systemic in various African countries with various negative impacts on the overall development efforts of the continent. CSO’s have a very important role in combating corruption in the continent through advocacy, reporting on and in challenging the practice. How effective they are in this direction requires sharing of experiences of various country contexts by both academics and practitioners working in the areas of corruption and civil society.

Meeting program Friday, May 20th, 2016 Creative Models For Sustaining NGOs: The Popular Iris Rise Of The Social Enterprise Model The heavy reliance on Foreign donor grants with all the attendant caprices has put the question of sustainability right up the top of the discourse on CSOs in Africa. The social enterprise model has been suggested by some as a solution to the problem of reliance on charity and on external resource mobilization. It is seen as a creative innovation for sustainability of development and of civil society organisations in Africa. Reports of social entrepreneurs leading and inspiring change have been made in all the regions of Africa. A panel of experts, who are social entrepreneurs in their own rights, will discuss these themes and outline the challenges and the direction of future developments. Speakers: Mrs. Amma Lartey Mr. Kojo Malcolm Parris Ms. Adaora A. Asala Moderator: Dr. Yahaya Hashim 10:30 - 12:00  The Confluence of Public Policy And Civil Society Australia Research Since the now old ‘second wind of change’ (the wind of democratic renewal that blew through Africa), Local Research and Advocacy CSOs, NGOs along with International actors have been engaged in policy research in order to push for evidenced based policies in their advocacy. However in the 1980s through to the first decade of this century Policy Making in Africa and beyond was hijacked by the Bretton Woods institutions. Policy dialogue became a negotiation between these organizations and African governments not between African governments and their people. We seek to find answers to the question of where the meeting point is, between Public Policy and Civil Society in Africa. Speakers: Clement Nwankwo Prof. Bolaji Owasonye Dr. Alan Abramson Moderator: Dr. Etannibi Alemika 10:30 - 12:00  CSO Synergies, Partnerships and Amplified Civic Antarctica Engagements in Nigeria Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) are having a larger impact on the way societies operate than ever before. They have become key drivers of policy, working together with the government at all tiers to provide new ideas that help address shared challenges around response, transparency, accountability and other elements that contribute to strengthened democracies and a better quality of life. With the rapid advancement of information and communication technologies, activists and advocates are using new tools more efficiently to give citizens a real voice in how they are governed. Speakers: Mrs Monika Umunna Ms. Dede Kadiri Ms. Ayo Obe Mr. Charles Abani Moderator: Ms. Victoria Ohaeri 10:30 - 12:00  Page 7

Meeting Program Friday, May 20th, 2016 12:15 - 13:15 13:30 - 15:00 Lunch Iris Impact Assessment And Effective Communication Iris of Results Communicating the results of work done by CSOs is extremely important, and the role of data and gaining insights from data is key. The session will explore the common pitfalls that characterize the work of CSOs who are able to do good work, but don’t do a thorough enough job of sharing the data and using evidential information in their advocacy. How can this challenge be addressed? How can technical results in specific areas be crystallized for non-technical audiences? Speakers: Dr. Omowunmi Olabalu Dr. Judith Millesen Moderator: Dr. Hussaini Abdu Data Sources for Empirical Research by Scholars & Australia Practitioners There is increasing recognition for empirical research to inform policy-making process. Also, there is no dispute over the fact that reliable and quality data sources are critical for sound empirical research that will yield inclusive and sustainable development outcomes. The aim of this panel discussion is to share various data sources, such as the Afrobarometer, and how these data sources can be most suitably be presented and acceptable to inform and enhance empirical research. Speakers: Dr. Bob Dulani Mr. Lorenzo A. Davids Mrs. Angela Otchi Moderator: Dr. Franklin Oduro 13:30 - 15:00 Understanding Philanthropy in Research and in Antarctica Practice in Africa A lot of Africa’s socio-economic development seems to be built on philanthropy from many non-African sources, especially from global financial institutions, non-African government agencies and nonprofit foundations. The sustainability of this approach has been addressed by Dambisa Moyo and other scholars, and there are still some critical questions that can deepen our understanding of trends in Africa, especially after the global financial crisis in 2008. In this session, we seek to understand the sustainability of the ‘philanthropy industry’ in Africa; we seek to learn what research and empirical infomation tell us about the characteristics of philanthropy by Africans, in Africa, as well as the constraints and opportunities that can further the cause and course of development in Africa. Speakers: Dr. Tendai Murisa Ms. Karen S. Sai Prof. Ebenezer Obadare Moderator: Mr. Innocent Chukwuma 13:30 - 15:00 Page 8

Meeting program Friday, May 20th, 2016 15:00 - 15:15  15:30 - 17:00  Networking Break Hallway Roundtable Discussion: Sharing Lessons: Effective Communication with Stakeholders through Iris Audiovisuals This aim of this Roundtable discussion is to share ideas on how CSO scholars and practitioners can communicate effectively with their stakeholders. Storytelling, through literary or audiovisual means is a powerful tool that can map the past (context, past performance and track record), illustrate the present (contemporary issues/status quo, challenges etc.) and provide a roadmap to the future (forecasts/projections, new frontiers in both research and practice etc). In this session, our roundtable panelists will discuss how they have engaged various tools in advocacy that illuminates context, challenges and impact of their work with a larger community.

Your checklist for attending the 2016 Annual ARNOVA Confer ence to view conference schedules, special events, deadlines and more! NOVEMBER 17-19, 2016 Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill 400 New Jersey Ave NW Washington, DC 20001 VISIT US AT WWW.ARNOVA.ORG (selling out fast) NONPROFITS, PHILANTHROPY, AND GOVERNMENT: POLICY AND PARTNERSHIPS IN AN ERA OF CHANGE The size, reach, and scope of the nonprofit and philanthropic sectors have never been greater. In the United States, available data indicate that nonprofit revenues, expenditures, and assets continue to expand. Within philanthropy, foundations have experienced significant growth as well, leading some to declare that the foundation field is in the midst of a second golden era, comparable only to the period when these institutions first achieved legal status. Despite a significant slowdown due to the Great Recession, growth also characterizes the long-term trend in individual giving. Much more than a U.S. phenomenon, efforts to document cross-national trends in nonprofit, philanthropic, and broader civil society initiatives reveal a striking global pattern of increased activity. What are the origins and the implications of these developments? The conference this year will explore these questions, especially in relation to policy and partnerships with government. Though widely used labels like nongovernmental organization (NGO), the third sector, and the independent sector connote separation from government, the public sector is intimately linked to the nonprofit and philanthropic sectors. Many studies have demonstrated that the growth of civil society and nonprofit organizations in the United States is inextricably linked to the structure and growth of governments in the U.S., from the founding of the colonies to modern times. BECOME A MEMBER OF ARNOVA ARNOVA is the association that links persons who have primary professional interests in research on and teaching about philanthropy, nonprofits, voluntary action and civil society.
