EBS Not-For-Profit User Group

20 November 2020

Join us for the 15th NFP User Group full of great speakers, innovative product updates along with the chance to network with your peers. 

About the EBS NFP User Group

The bi-annual user group started 7 years ago when a group of not-for-profit clients were looking to share information on the challenges they were facing in their sector and learn from each other how they were addressing these. 

Group Discussions

Finance managers in the not-for-profit and community health space have a unique opportunity to discuss the challenges they are dealing with on a day-to-day basis and contribute knowledge to solving these as a whole.

Live Product Demos

Led by product specialists that are up-to-date in what is new in the core functionality and see complementary products to help you gain more hours in your day.

Featured Talks & Speakers

Our NFP User Group focuses on bringing our clients together as a community and providing information that helps you to get the most from technology to increase your productivity and growth.  We are proud to have our regular speakers and some new faces at our latest event.
