Thanks. Sure! Let's have a small core Fund Raising team that discusses the options for fund raising....and we post updates to all others once we agree on something.
Would like to know: 1. Is there a budget already? 2. Will this be fully or partially funded by anyone. 3. Are we raising funds for the Conference expenses or will we be raising funds for the Foundation. I have no views/preferences...just like to know so that when we approach possible sponsors we communicate correctly. The Starting Point should be: For The Conf Organising Committee to outline the schedule/programme and expected scale. I assume it is a 3 day Event Once we have that as a base document all other teams can get to work around that pale blue print. The Fund Raising Team will analyse all the fund raising opportunities around the programme and work from there.
