Old friends and new are at the top of the agenda as 2018 breaks into a gallop for the donorflex team.
A relationship going back almost 30 years is rekindled with Hospice UK, when we take the lead sponsors role at the organisations new national Fundraising Conference, at Solihulls St Johns Hotel on Tuesday, February 20.
A few days later on Thursday, March 1 well be joining hundreds of small charities at the London Resource Centre for the Foundation for Social Improvements Skills Conference, delivering a workshop on a subject thats close to our hearts, managing data in the new GDPR era.
A fortnight later, well be at Bristols Bristol Hotel for the annual National Association of Hospice Fundraisers Conference, which takes place on Monday-Tuesday, March 19-20.
Were looking forward to the FSI and Hospice UK events immensely, says donorflex managing director Brian Todd. The Skills conference gives us an opportunity to sit down with a lot of charities for whom GDPR looms particularly large, so well be interested to hear their thoughts and questions and share some of our own.
And partnering Hospice UK for their fundraising-focussed conference is equally important. The two organisations have advanced in parallel over the past 30-odd years, and weve both played a big part in the way that hospices have grown as part of the fabric of our communities and the charity sector.
With barely a pause for breath, the donorflex team will then settle in to final preparations for 2018s run of Regional User Group roadshows, which kick off at Birminghams Midlands Arts Centre on Tuesday, April 17, and come to a close a further seven dates later with the North-East 2 gathering at Darlingtons Holiday Inn Scotch Corner on Thursday, May 17.
