Why attend Foundant Summit 2017?

Simply put, because it’s the best way to ensure that your organization is using your Grant Lifecycle Manager (GLM) solution as completely and efficiently as possible. In addition, it is a great place to learn, share, and connect with other Foundant clients.

Whether you’ve been a Foundant client from the beginning and need to catch up on the most recent releases, or perhaps you’re new to GLM and want to learn the system thoroughly – Foundant Summit 2017 is where you need to be.

Here you will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn the ins and outs of GLM from Foundant staff and some of our expert clients.
  • Get caught up on all the new features and enhancements.
  • Take advantage of One-on-One training to implement what you’ve learned in group training sessions or check things off your to-do list.
  • Discover how to manage your processes, communication channels, and workflow as well as how and when to use Foundant GLM Reporting.
  • Meet with our Development Team and gain firsthand knowledge of what’s coming up in the software, give feedback directly to our VP of Development, and share with Dev your GLM wish list items.
  • Connect with other grantmakers where you will not only learn best practices, but also share unique ideas on how others are using GLM.

As you can see, you will be doing a lot of learning, but it’s important to keep in mind that you will also be able to implement what you’ve learned through hands on implementation breakout sessions, Learning Lab sessions (hands on time with Foundant experts to ask specific questions), and an optional One-on-One training time on Wednesday. So, bring your laptops and get ready to fine tune your GLM system!

The knowledge you’ll gain and the relationships you’ll build will go beyond your time at Summit. The information, connections, and skills you take home will make your team stronger and more efficient, which will save your organization time and money.
