Each year, we select 20 members from the international fundraising community to become a member of the fun and vital Session Leader team at the IFC with the opportunity to network with world-renowned speakers and delegates from all over the world. In exchange for your help, we will provide you with accommodation and food as well as a significantly reduced registration fee of £685.

What does a session leader do at the IFC?
You will be the first point of contact for your assigned speaker if he or she requires any assistance before, during or after their session. You will monitor the distribution and collection of evaluation forms before and after their session. In addition, session leaders will work as a group and act as an information point for delegates, speakers and the Resource Alliance staff.

Session leader requirements
We select an international group of 20 people who themselves work in fundraising, come from a country with an emerging philanthropic culture, may be from charities with a small training budget, or fundraisers starting out as consultants. It is most important that we have an international, vibrant and flexible team that knows how to have fun and work hard too!

The deadline to apply to be a Session Leader at IFC 2018 (Mon 15 Oct - Fri 19 Oct) is 27 June 2018. If you have any questions, please send an email to ifc@resource-alliance.org

Decision Process
All Session Leader applications will be reviewed by the Resource Alliance. You will hear back by July on the outcome of your submission.

 If your application is successful, you will be required to pay the discounted registration fee of £685 by 31 August 2018. You will also be responsible for your own travel to/from IFC 2018, including all arrangements, payment and required travel documents. Please consider these factors before applying to be a Session Leader.

Thank you, and good luck!
