The Fundraising Institute of Australia has put out its program for its conference to be held in Melbourne from Feb 24 – 27 in 2011.
Here’s a link so you can see the speakers and topics which are divided into streams – Foundations and Philanthropists, Bequests, Fundraising Fundamentals, Major Gifts/Corporate Partnerships, Relationship Marketing and Executive Leadership and Management.
Is anyone planning to go?
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!
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.
