    I was considering attending a masterclass but they are a bit pricey for my little NFP!

    • Yes – I was wondering how small not for profits with only tiny professional development budgets decide which conferences/masterclasses and trainings are best for them. I would have liked to go to the bequest stream at the FIA conference, just out of interest, but as it is not directly related to my role and as I am not directly in fundraising, I can’t justify it to my employer either. Perhaps we can look forward to people moving into the digital age and tweeting throughout so we get the gist of what is said!

  2. I agree with Sue. An alternative lower cost event for smaller registered non-profits would be great. I guess I’ll just have to start one myself! 🙂

    • thanks for your comment. Until funding bodies and grantmakers recognise the importance of professional development the way to find information, meet with peers and exchange information might remain very patchy. I look forward to your alternative lower cost event with interest.
