Tell your charity's story at the CFG Annual Conference 2021

Every year the CFG Annual Conference brings together our talented charity finance community doing incredible work for the sector. Submit your story and take part as a speaker at our 2021 Conference!

CFG is delighted to be returning with our fully online four day Annual Conference on 11-14 October 2021.

Each year the CFG Annual Conference offers a range of speakers from the corporate and charity sectors. Our Annual Conference call for papers is now open for our charity members!

Do you have a case study, learning or tried and tested best practice to share, inspired by the theme "Leading the way – Effective, Inclusive, Resilient"?

It’s been a tough year, and we want to hear from our members about your experiences in the context of one or all of these areas in our event theme; and how you’re utilising learning to move forwards.

Whether it’s how you’re making your finance processes more effective, or taking a fresh look at your EDI strategy, we encourage you to apply.

Giving you the chance to connect with your community
A vital element of the CFG network is to tap into the collective knowledge of our peers. Feedback shows that CFG members greatly value sessions from their sector colleagues, gaining insights which can be taken and implemented within their own organisation. As a speaker, members can use the opportunity as a time to reflect on their own work, celebrate positive outcomes and gain feedback from peers.

We're looking for all levels of experience
For this year’s Annual Conference, we are looking for charity finance professionals and leaders from a variety of backgrounds and organisations to share their experience so that others can learn from them. This year we are looking for a wide range of sessions that all levels, from junior to more experienced finance professionals, can benefit from.

This year's theme: Leading the way – Effective, Inclusive, Resilient
We’ve faced a time of significant challenge and change, as finance leaders and as a sector. This has influenced not only how we work, but how we see ourselves as individuals and organisations, and how we decide on the direction of the path ahead.

The CFG Annual Conference 2021 will empower you as finance teams and charity leaders to feel supported and confident in making the best decisions for your organisation and its culture for long-term strength. We want to equip you to be the best you can be in an environment that continues to test us, so you can focus on your role supporting the people and causes you serve.

How to submit your session and what happens next

Complete our online form or download the form and email it to events@cfg.org.uk by the end of Monday 12 April 2021.

The sessions will be reviewed and shortlisted and we might get back in touch to ask for further details before making a final decision.

(Finally, make sure you pencil 11-14 October 2021 in your diary, we can't wait to see you there!)
