Event Managers' Forum
The Event Managers Forum is a special interest group of the Institute of Fundraising, focused on fundraising through challenge and special events.
Our members are an informal group of charity employees directly involved in fundraising through various types of events and the committee is run by charity event fundraisers in their spare time.
The EMF host quarterly meetings to discuss a topic of interest, hear from key speakers or stakeholders within the sector, and network with colleagues from other charities.
Whether it's advice on pitching new products, how to make the most from digital tools, presentations on performance across the sector or suggestions for leadership and developing work culture, we try to find speakers who can bring value to your teams.
Roundtable meetings are a chance to openly discuss triumphs and tragedies in a small group.
Each meeting has a chair but attendees set their own agenda. All those around the table are encouraged to share their own experiences, results and advice. Meetings are informal, friendly and usually take about two hours.
We host separate Roundtable meetings for Seniors and Fundraisers to ensure discussions are relevant.
Our forum has always been a popular feature.
Head to the messageboard to ask questions on anything Events related. Whatever your problem, someone has been there before and can offer some advice. It's also a good place to leave us some feedback on our meetings, make suggestions for future speakers and see if there are any job vacancies which take your fancy.
Why not join the Forum and experience the benefit of instant contact with like minded people working towards the same goals.
