CBB | Corporate
CBB the not4profit people was formed on the 1st July 1995, as a wholly independent incorporated organisation.
The formation of CBB evolved from the restructuring of the Spastic Centres of South Australia Inc (now known as SCOSA, CARA & CBB). As a result, separate agencies emerged and CBB was established to service the administration requirements within the community service sector, in particular to meet their payroll and financial needs.
Based in a new building on the Woodville campus the 13 enthusiastic and dedicated staff members of CBB embarked on an exciting inaugural year, which saw the Community Business Bureau evolve into an independently incorporated Association, governed by a new Board of Management.
During this period CBB established itself as a non-profit business enterprise, operating on a fee-for-service basis providing Financial, Payroll, Human Resources and Training services to the community sector.
In the first year of operation CBB enjoyed much success with client numbers rising from 25 to 83 by the end of the year. This initial success was contributed mainly by the long term commitment by the Spastic Centres Network agencies to continue to utilise CBB’s services.
Over the years CBB expanded their range of services and to coincide with the introduction of tax changes for public benevolent institutions in 2001, CBB established a Salary Packaging product to offer to the marketplace.
To honour the life and memory of Keith Fulton, CBB Foundation Board Member, and his commitment to leadership development and lifelong learning, in 2004 the inaugural Keith Fulton Memorial Scholarship was created. This scholarship continues to provide an opportunity to enhance the leadership skills of people in the community sector, especially those who may not normally have such an opportunity.
Today, CBB is a unique organisation with a clear vision and mission to strengthen Not for Profit organisations. CBB is currently based in the eastern suburbs of Adelaide with over 35 staff.
CBB is committed to continuing to developing our products and services to better serve the community and relevant government sectors.
CBB's new office location was officially launched on 25 October 2011 at 17 Phillips Street, Kensington SA.
