2006 - Current Issues, Future Directions

Wednesday, 31 May 2006, 08:30

Charity Finance is evolving. The ability to juggle a variety of tasks is one of the key skills required of the 21st century charity finance practitioner. This year's CFDG conference takes stock of where we are, and looks to the future. The role of the finance professional in charities, and the role of charities in society are at the centre of the conference.

With the first programme stream looking at the role of finance in relation to the rest of the organisation, the second stream looks at external forces influencing the role of finance, whether they are legal, economic or regulatory.

The third and fourth streams focus on two key issues in the sector in 2006 - the role of charities in the provision of public services, and the role of performance measurement and impact reporting in charity management.

The conference is open to CFDG members and other charity practitioners and experts. It is a forum for leading practitioners in the charity sector to learn from charity case studies, and leading experts and to engage in discussion about the future role of finance and the future of charities.

The Exhibition

There will be an exhibition alongside the conference programme. Exhibitors working in a range of service areas will be available for delegates to meet, ask questions and share information.

The informal setting is an excellent opportunity to find products and service suppliers who can assist in tackling your charities' problems and who can help to make the management of your charity more efficient.

The conference timetable allows delegates plenty of opportunity to browse the exhibition and network during breaks.
