Monday 7 - Friday 11 December 


CFG’s Annual Conference 2020 is the charity finance event of the year, where finance teams and leaders from across the voluntary sector come together. This year, the theme of Creating a Better Future is as vital as ever.

In December, we’re bringing you the conference online across five days, so you can fully access all five streams of the conference and gain the most value out of your booking. Full programme details will be announced soon.

The Annual Conference week will equip you for the future with over 12 hours of speaker sessions, the space to network with your sector peers and share experiences and support, and seek advice from our expert exhibitors.

In our 2020 programme, we want to bring you an event which sparks a creative journey.

At a time where nothing has been certain, organisations in the sector have been on a journey of ups, downs, ambiguity and change.

Our aim for the 2020 conference is to instil a new confidence and a fresh perspective in a transforming landscape. The theme will be Creating a better future.

The event will galvanise you into creativity, not just in the big challenges we face as a community with shared values, but in our common experiences, projects and stories, empowering you to play an active and informed role in the sector’s future. Together we can create a 20/20 vision for 2020 and beyond.

You will hear from your colleagues across the sector and expert speakers in inspiring sessions on strategic direction, technical updates and practical workshops. Whether you’re dealing with finances on the ground, or leading the way for your teams, you’ll leave the conference buzzing with a whole range of insights.

Who should come along?
