Institute of Legacy Management Northern Irish Conference Sponsored by Cleaver Fulton Rankin

August 8, 2014

The Institute of Legacy Management (ILM) is hosting a conference in Northern Ireland for the first time, aimed at helping the local charity sector manage and distribute legacy gifts.

Sponsored by Belfast law firm Cleaver Fulton Rankin, this free event, open to all charities, will be held at the NICVA premises in Belfast on 18 September 2014.

Over £2bn is bequeathed to charities in the UK every year and the Institute of Legacy Management is the foremost provider of information and training on legacy administration.  It has over 500 members, representing 300 charities, and helps them manage legacy gifts.

The conference will have several expert speakers and will cover issues of concern for the charity sector, including presentations on the administration of estates, property issues for Legacy Managers and Charity Law issues. Guest speakers include leading barrister Sheena Grattan BL and Meg Abdy of Legacy Foresight.  They and the Cleaver Fulton Rankin Charities team, and other legacy professionals will give presentations on the types of legal and practical issues which can arise during the administration of estates. There will also be opportunities to network and exchange ideas with fellow attendees.

Nichola Sims from ILM said, “We have held several conferences all over the UK, but have yet to come to Northern Ireland. We are really looking forward to providing vital information and supporting the thriving charity sector here in their work.”

Jonathan Forrester, Cleaver Fulton Rankin Director commented that “We are delighted to support the Institute of Legacy Management in bringing its first conference to Northern Ireland. We know that this is an event which will be of real benefit and interest to the charity sector in Northern Ireland.”
