CFDG announce finance matters in the North

8th April 2008

The Charity Finance Directors' Group are pleased to announce their first conference outside of London, which will be held on 12th June at the Palace Hotel, Manchester. The conference is open to charities and corporate organisations, and is entitled "Finance matters, Hot Topics and Core Essentials".

Keith Hickey, CEO of CFDG, says, "By boosting our presence across England and Wales CFDG can more effectively represent and serve finance professionals in charities, and help them to increase the value of every pound given to them. Our Northern conference aims to widen the reach of our services and expertise to the many charities that operate outside of London."

The conference will present a strong programme of national and local speakers, addressing the wide range of issues that face the modern finance professional. Our opening plenary session on governance will be given by Carol Rudge from Grant Thornton, and our closing plenary on resource allocation and performance management will be presented by Pesh Framjee from Deloitte. Alongside updates on tax, law and IT, delegates will have a choice of topical sessions on leadership, fundraising, ethical investment, accountability and contracts. In addition to the formal programme this conference will also provide a great opportunity for charity staff to network with their sector colleagues.

The conference is kindly sponsored by The Co-operative Bank and Grant Thornton.
