Smart Tuition will be taking an active role in the Blackbaud User Conference in Boston, Massachusetts on July 13-15th. Over 900 participants will be attending the conference to learn about Blackbaud and Smart Tuition products and services as well as to hear from great speakers and technology experts.
Inspiring Keynote Speaker, Julie Lythcott-Haims kicks off the User Conference. Julie spent a decade as Stanford University’s Dean of Freshmen where she was known for both her fierce advocacy for students and her equally fierce critique of the growing trend of parental involvement in the day-to-day lives of college students. She is a teacher, writer, and most recently a TED talk presenter!
Since Blackbaud purchased Smart Tuition in October of 2015, Smart Tuition will have their own track at the User Conference. Smart will be offering training sessions on tuition management, payment and donation portals, and Smart Aid financial aid need assessment. Our key managers, including our CEO Matt Knapp, will be providing thought leadership sessions on how schools can think ahead and use technology to innovate processes and services at their schools: “At Smart, our success comes from seeing schools succeed and having them sustain their long term traditions in the communities they serve.”
Smart will also be exhibiting with 22 other sponsors and exhibitors in the exhibition hall. Diamond sponsors for the event are Carney Sandoe & Associates, Magnus Health, and School Admin. Sponsors and exhibitors have the opportunity to reach the over 900 attendees.
Blackbaud will have free live product support where attendees can schedule one-on-one time with Blackbaud product specialists.
The 2016 User Conference in Boston will provide a chance for learning, networking, fun and a chance to explore Boston!
