DevelopmentCircle.org is a network of location-based peer groups for community and international development professionals and students.
Starting with Sydney Development Circle, there are now Development Circles in Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and fledgling groups in Adelaide in Canberra.
How the groups operate
Each group has been started by one or more passionate individuals in a major city, is run by a small team of volunteers, and operates on a “not-for-profit” basis. All funds collected at events cover the costs of venue, food, beverages, and in the case where there is revenue for an event, it is put towards future events for that calendar year or a nominated charity.
Melbourne Development Circle is a registered association.
