FRSB advisory forum sets out tasks

Codes of fundraising practice and Fundraising Promise schemes top agenda

The FRSB has confirmed the priorities for its members advisory forum after its first meeting last week.

The forum is made up of 25 representatives from FRSB member organisations of all sizes. It will meet every three months and provide feedback on the development of the Institute of Fundraising's codes of fundraising practice and the FRSB Fundraising Promise schemes.

It will also contribute to marketing and communications plans, help develop and publicise member benefits and devise ways of gauging awareness of the organisation.

The forum was established as part of the FRSB's "new phase of development" announced last summer (Third Sector, 17 March), a scheme set up to give members from across the sector an opportunity to contribute to aspects of the FRSB's work.

Alistair McLean, chief executive at the FRSB, said: "The forum is a chance for us to work with our members and develop the scheme to everyone's benefit. It was agreed that early work will consider ways of developing membership and assessing public awareness."

The next meeting will be held in June.
