Charity Accountants' Conference 2015

This year's conference will take place in Nottingham on 17-18 September. There will be sessions to develop your knowledge and skills and bring you up to date with the new SORPs and tax issues.

"As accountants' conferences go it was by far and away the most enjoyable that I have ever attended. A really good variety of workshops to suit all needs and plenty of opportunities to network and chat with other delegates." Jill Long, Teenage Cancer Trust 

"It was good to meet you and all your colleagues. I am sure that all of the delegates greatly appreciated the expertise that you all freely shared and went back to their charities better equipped and inspired to lead and support their organisations." Paul Holland, Shirley Baptist Church
