The Institute of Fundraising Technology Group has announced that John Carr, partner manager for Facebook Europe, will be opening its Annual Conference on May 20th.

Carr will launch the conference by sharing insights on how Facebook is working with charities to improve digital fundraising and expand their reach. For the lunchtime keynote, strategy expert Lucy Gower of Lucidity will demonstrate the power of innovation and how charities can embrace it and influence change within their organisations.

Delegates will be able to choose from 12 informative sessions across three streams – Managing Change, Keeping it Legal and Skill-Building – giving them access to the knowledge and experience of some of the best in their field.

Speakers from Unicef and Adapta will talk about how to manage change to deliver strategic objectives, MSF UK will take us through how to create fundraising and compliance success in a digital age, and The Woodland Trust will review the practical steps necessary to prepare your CRM systems for the new fundraising regulation and the FPS. Change.org will provide the closing plenary.

Prices start from just £70 for the whole day for IoF members (or £95 for non-members). The price includes access to a networking and drinks reception.

According to Conference Chair Nicola Lawson: If you are involved in technology in the NFP sector  and want to prepare your organisation for the challenges ahead, you can’t afford to miss it.”

The conference takes place at America Square, near Tower Hill in London. Learn more and register for the event here.
