From 17th and 18th February 2015, CHASE 2015 will take place at the Business Design Centre in London.
Now in its 23rd year, CHASE, the leading business-to-business event for charities and associations, has launched free online registration for the 2015 event. Known for its focus on the challenges faced by third sector professionals, the event promises a programme that will examine all the latest tools, techniques and practices in the sector.
Michael Webb, Director of Conference House, the organising body behind CHASE, said: “For both charities and associations today’s landscape is really quite complex. Charities face new challenges in every area of their operations. In recent years, donors have become much more pro-active about how and why they give, and fundraisers must respond creatively. New technology offers new opportunities, but the scope of options can be confusing. Risk and regulations management is changing, especially in areas like fraud prevention and data protection. Charities are having to do more with less, meet all these challenges, and ensure that their service delivery remains excellent at the same time.”
CHASE will also address the key issues that affect association leaders, according to Webb. “We find that associations are particularly interested in how to engage members with new resources and services, how to generate increased revenue from events and conferences and how to push membership management to a digital audience, whilst often relying on limited or voluntary human resources.”
Delegates can choose from seminar streams covering associations and membership, fundraising and marketing, technology, finance, compliance and leadership. In addition a busy exhibition floor will provide the chance to explore and compare innovative services, seeking out the best solutions to drive organisational success.

Charities believe corporate fundraising is a key growth area. But recent research by the IoF has revealed that just 7% of charities with a corporate fundraising programme feel that it is “fully developed”. With this in mind, Virgin Money Giving is hosting a series of free live events between 5th and 7th October to help charities grow their corporate fundraising.
