The has published details of its three-day National Convention which takes place in London from 4 to 6 July 2011. “The biggest gathering of fundraisers in Europe”, last year’s event was attended by more than 2,000 people.

The annual convention features workshops, presentations, debates and networking opportunities, together with a large exhibition area of fundraising companies and suppliers. There are 108 sessions available, divided into nine tracks including corporate; community, events and volunteers; digital; personal effectiveness; and legacies.

New for this year is ‘The Apprentice for Fundraisers’. This involves two teams of “high-powered fundraising directors and consultants”, who have no experience of charity retail, being tasked with transforming the impact of a charity shop in Tunbridge Wells in just 24 hours and a budget of £250. The session has been devised by Bernard Ross and his colleagues at The Management Centre.

The event costs from £225 per day for Institute individual members, up to £575 for the full three days. Non-members pay higher rates. However, bookings made before 21 April 2011 qualify for a 10% discount, making the individual member day rate £203 and the three-day rate £518.
