NALC has amalgamated the previously held larger councils’ conference into this new Spring Conference to provide many larger (and other) councils with practical, helpful sessions on services of interest to them – whilst being near enough to the timing of the former larger councils’ conference to still be of direct interest to larger and medium-sized councils. This will be a brilliant opportunity for councillors, clerks, county officers and members, exhibitors and sponsors to network, share good practice and be equipped with the best skills to face the future challenges of their communities.

Event – The Good Exchange Forum – ‘What do grant givers and fundraisers really think about how technology is used in the charitable sector?’

February 28, 2019
Date: February 28, 2019
While the widely acclaimed April 2017 Esmée Fairbairn Foundation/Blagrave Trust ‘Listening for Change Report’ explored the relationships between funders and social purpose organisations and highlighted some key issues that needed to be addressed ( particularly around the grant application and reporting process and cross industry collaboration), 21 months have passed since it was published. The Good Exchange has set out to discover what has changed since then and we will be revealing the results of our findings at an exclusive forum for members of the funding and fundraising community on Thursday 28th February 2019. At this invitation-only event, attendees will hear the latest views on charitable technology, network with peers and treat themselves to a unique look at the top 100 images from the 2018 ‘Wildlife Photographer of the Year’ competition (usually only available for an entrance fee at the Natural History Museum in London).
