Hello Hollywood - update on PEAK Grantmaking (formerly GMN) Annual Conference

SmartSimple took to the skies and followed a warmer jet stream down to Hollywood, CA, last week to attend the much anticipated GMN (Grants Managers Network) Annual Conference (March 20-22).
The three-day event is one of the biggest gatherings for grantmakers, and a key event in SmartSimple’s calendar.
This was our 6th year there, and as always, it was a valuable opportunity to catch up with grants managers and CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) professionals from across the country, and share the unique benefits of our grants management solutions.

SmartSimple exhibits at ACCP Annual Conference

SmartSimple representatives made the trip to San Antonio, Texas earlier this week to exhibit at the ACCP (Association of Corporate Contributions Professionals) Annual Conference (March 12-15).

The three-day gathering brings together CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) professionals from across the U.S., to discuss CSR strategy and the value of corporate giving.
It was our first time attending the conference, and it proved to be a valuable opportunity to meet with CSR Executives working in the private sector. We took the opportunity to share a sneak peek at CSR360°, our end-to-end CSR management solution.

Dr. Teresa Clarke Director of Research Solutions
As Director of Research Solutions, I work with some incredible women in research funding organizations from around the world. From an early stage, I made clear choices to follow a career in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics). Having graduated in Biochemistry, I completed a PhD in structural biology, followed by an post-doctoral position in a leading pharma firm.
