The Institute of Fundraising is seeking submissions for events at the Scottish Fundraising Conference 2018.

The conference, which will take place in Glasgow on 2 and 3 October 2018, will include masterclasses, plenary speakers and session speakers. It aims to provide a wide-ranging learning experience for Scottish fundraisers.

The conference organising committee is particularly interested in mangaement, strategy and policy issues, community and events fundraising ideas, sessions on individual giving, corporate and trusts, and marketing and communications, including digital fundraising and compaigns. It would also be interested events on personal development, major gifts and legacies.

Masterclasses will be delivered by senior leaders in the sector who can effectively share their learning and help others to examine a single issue or discipline in greater depth. Masterclasses are delivered over two sessions allowing participants to discuss, listen and learn in more detail.

Plenary speakers will be expected to hold a room, and speak with authority and insight.

Session speakers will deliver an hour-long session perhaps focusing on innovative strategy or including an insightful case study. The backbone of the conference, these hour long sessions take attendees through different areas of learning. Some might take a workshop format, others sharing case studies or learning from a specific area of practice.

The committee wants to ensure a diverse and representative conference, so will particularly welcome submissions from women in leadership, disabled people and members of the black and minority ethnic communities. 

Submit an idea for a masterclass or plenary sesssion or a conference session by 12 January 2018. For further information, contact the conference support team on [email protected]
