Donor Relations and Stewardship
Join us back in London this June for our CASE Donor Relations and Stewardship Conference. Gain expertise from professionals in your sector, build connections and network with your peers. There will be sessions and studies on key topics - spanning stewardship and events - as well as opportunities for discussion in roundtables. The Conference will aim to cover the full range of Donor Relations activity (or as much as we can possibly fit into one day!) – from long-term strategy to quick wins.
*Notice* - Date change to 8 July*
After careful consideration and in response to feedback from a large number of delegates and volunteer speakers, we have taken the difficult decision to postpone the CASE Donor Relations conference originally scheduled for 22 June in London. Industrial action is taking place across the UK rail network on 21, 23 and 25 June. Disruption is also expected to carry over into non-strike days during the week with only about 60% of services expected to run.
Donor Relations and Stewardship will now take place on Friday 8 July at the same venue: Friend's House, 173-177 Euston Road, London NW1 2BJ.
If you are affected by this date change, please see our webpage for more information.
