Are you Privacy Compliant?

As fundraisers it's our job to know as much as we can about our donors to help us communicate effectively and meaningfully. In turn, donors trust us to do the right thing, not only with their donations but also with their personal information - should trust be broken it's very hard to rebuild especially in the not-for-profit world. It has been two years since the Privacy Act was amended. Significant changes came into effect and with those changes comes some confusion. Rob Edwards, Chief Executive Officer of Fundraising Institute Australia (FIA) brings insight into the key points of the Privacy Act and its principles. Rob will answer any burning questions you may have, so you can leave confident that you are privacy compliant.

Date: Wednesday 14 September
Time: 7.15 - 9.00am 
Venue: Victoria Park Golf Complex, Quartz Room, Herston Road, Herston
Price: Member: $55; Staff of Organisational Member: $65; Non -Member: $85
