FIA Conference

The Fundraising Conference is an integral part of FIA’s annual professional development education program and remains the largest gathering of fundraisers in the southern hemisphere. Each year the conference program is designed to ensure that fundraisers get exposure of both core and up-to-date fundraising techniques, disciplines, trends and ideas. It provides an opportunity to examine the present and future direction of the industry and is the peak event of its kind in Australia and Asia Pacific.
