SmartSimple brings non-profit professionals together again at the Chicago Fall Community Conference 2015
Building on the success of last year’s Fall Community Conference, SmartSimple invites you back to Chicago for another full-day of interactive engagement.
“We were really pleased with how well our first fall conference was received last year,” says Sarah Harris, Director, Client Support and Operations, “so we decided to go back to the Windy City and host our second community conference outside of our home base in Toronto, Canada.”
The Fall Community Conference is the ideal setting for our clients to engage with the SmartSimple team in dynamic discussions about their systems, its functions and features. It’s also a valuable opportunity to network with peers and share ideas and insights about the non-profit community.
What will I get out of the conference?
The conference is designed to provide attendees with:
· An update on new developments at SmartSimple.
· Useful tips about features and functions in your SmartSimple system that you may not have taken advantage of.
· A chance to have open discussions with our experts, and the opportunity to provide input for future enhancements and upgrades.
· An opportunity to meet and network with local and national peers in the non-profit, philanthropic, research and foundation spaces.
Who should attend the conference from my organization?
Grants and research managers, administrators, executives and decision-makers will benefit from this year’s event by learning more about new SmartSimple functionalities. Attendees will also have the opportunity to voice their thoughts on upcoming features and functions.
What will the day look like?
The complete agenda is available on the Fall Community Conference page on the SmartSimple website.
New this year – you take the floor!
We are also excited to be hosting our first peer-to-peer panel, led by your colleagues from Chicago Community Trust, YMCA USA and Feeding America. “We wanted to give our clients an opportunity to create and have a session to discuss industry topics, trends and issues that impact the day to day operations of their organizations,” adds Sarah.

A special thank you!
Of course this event would not be possible without the assistance of the Chicago Community Trust, who is generously donating their offices to us for the day. “The Trust provided a great venue last year and we are very happy they were able to offer their hospitality again.”
