Welcome to Developing Your Organisation (DYO)

Developing Your Organisation is a resource for Queensland Community Organisations containing useful information such as manuals, handbooks, a nonprofit standard chart of accounts, checklists, streamed training videos, model forms, and precedent policies.

Originally funded by the Queensland Government Department of Families in 1994 for use by the Department's funded organisations and its resource officers, two subsequent updates have occurred with the latest being the 2008 version.
