Another conference alert for early next year.
CASE is the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education – and is the peak body for higher education advancement (development and fundraising).
Their next conference in our region is the Asia Pacific Advancement Conference to be held in Singapore in early March.
Their target audience is advancement professionals in alumni relations, development, marketing and communications – ie staff working in universities and colleges raising money and profile and developing relationships.
There is not much detail yet on the program, but some of the featured speakers include the Director of Public Relations and Chief Marketing Officer at Murdoch University , the Headmaster of the Chinese International School (in Hong Kong), the Vice President for Advancement at Colorado College and the Director, of the Development Office at Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.
The conference aims to address how global issues and the changing economy affect institutions in their advancement work and brings together information and expertise on maximising fundraising strategies, building strong relationships, using the best tools to increase outreach and managing institutional reputation.
Another one I probably won’t be able to get to. I hope there will be some papers published which I can share with you later.
