The main page for the OCSA 2009 Conference is at The program is at I thought I would highlight a few interesting speakers namely Seb Elsworth, from the UK Association of Chief Executives of Voluntary Organisations(ACEVO) who will be discussing “Business Development: $ and Sense of Building Your Business”.  As well, Robert (Bob) Harrington, MSW/LCSW, of La Piana Consulting based in California will be talking about “Real Time Strategic Planning within a Constantly Changing Environment”.  Cynthia Armour will also be talking about the board’s role in fundraising and also fundraising in hard times.  Far less interesting, I will be talking about top 15 charity legal compliance risks.  There will also be a number of presentations on pandemic preparedness.
