This year is the 14th National Convention and places for the event on 7, 8 and 9 July are already selling fast. From next week this column will introduce new developments in the programme and help explain how the convention can benefit you as a one-stop shop for your development needs.
The National Convention is the flagship event for the Institute of Fundraising and incorporates more than 150 workshops and sessions, contributions from more than 200 speakers and an exhibition area with 50 stands comprising the leading suppliers to the sector and umbrella organisations.
How it will be structured
As last year, there are two parts to the convention. Prior to the formal opening of the convention, we are running specialised workshops during the day on 7 July. Proving very popular last year, the workshops present an opportunity to strengthen your knowledge and skills.
The convention formally opens on Monday 7 July at 4.00pm. From then until Wednesday afternoon there will be a diverse and inspiring range of events including plenary sessions, hour-long sessions, table surgeries at lunch, one-to-one clinics, networking opportunities, the Institute AGM, the exhibition and an entertaining social programme including the Institute of Fundraising & PF Awards.
