2012 was an important year for CFG; we celebrated our 25th anniversary, revamped our logo and strapline.  One of the key themes for us and our members this year has been impact reporting and measurement which featured in our meetings, conferences and publications.

To kick-start 2013 we will be holding our very first Impact Leadership Conference in partnership with NPC, supported by ACEVO, NCVO and the Institute of Fundraising. Responding to feedback from our members, for the first time we are providing conference streams that are tailored to a range of organisational disciplines: strategy, finance and systems management, programme/service delivery and engaging with external audiences. Attending this conference will give you, your colleagues, or even a whole team - the opportunity to explore what impact leadership means for your charity and how it can be best achieved in the context of your charity. 

This innovative conference programme will bring a combination of practical workshops, and specially developed sessions with experts and peers from across the sector sharing views, advice and knowledge; altogether the day will be designed to challenge and to enable organisations to develop realistic next steps.   

During the day there will be time to network with delegates and exchange ideas and views on the challenges you face, and to visit the exhibitor stands during the refreshment breaks. The conference can also support your personal development with 5 hours of CPD.


The reception
All delegates are invited to join CFG and NPC at the drinks reception at the close of the day. The reception provides an excellent opportunity to meet with our speakers and to extend the networking part of the day.

The drinks reception is sponsored by

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 charity's problems and who can help to make the management of your charity more efficient.

We urge you to book early to avoid missing out on this one-of-a-kind targeted event, tailored specifically to meet your needs.
