This is not a commercial conference

The Foundation for Professional Development (FPD) serves as the Secretariat (logistics and event manager) and provides seed funding for the Conference activities and scholarship programme. The Conference aims to keep costs as low as possible for delegates and ensure that those delegates who cannot afford the Conference fee are subsidised through a scholarship fund. Should the Conference generate any surplus funds, these will be utilised to subsidise future conferences or skills building activities for the basic education sector.

FPD is registered with the Department of Education as a private institution of higher education in terms of Section 54(1) (c) of the Act and Regulation 16(4) (a). FPD was established in 1997 by the South African Medical Association, one of the oldest not for profit organizations in South Africa. FPD prides itself on being one of the few private institutions of higher education that fully engages in the three areas of higher education scholarship namely teaching and learning, research and community engagement. As part of FPD's commitment to community engagement and social mobilization FPD organizes large national and international conferences. FPD believes that such events are powerful catalysts for advancing social causes. FPD however does not influence the conference programme which is decided by the conference committee under the leadership of the conference co-chairs.

Examples of some of the conferences that FPD has organized include:
