SAAA: 2nd Annual Not-for-Profit Industry Conference – 8 CPD hours – Jun 2015

The challenges of running a not-for-profit organisation are seemingly endless. From the basic issues around setting up and running an NPO, to more complex challenges of achieving sustainability and evaluating the impact of their programmes. NPOs need to be more savvy than ever before if they want to not only survive, but thrive in today’s economic environment.

This conference has been designed to address the needs of NPOs in South Africa, regardless of sector or size. This year’s speakers come from a wide variety of backgrounds and include both large and smaller NPOs, government departments, academia and agencies and consultants that work extensively with the not-for-profit sector.
