Candid Midwest presents our fourth annual Summer Social, a free event where members of the Northeast Ohio social sector can meet, learn about new approaches to nonprofit management and fundraising, and network with experts across the nonprofit spectrum.

The theme for this year's Summer Social is "Working Together."  Come and learn from special guests about the combination of Foundation Center and GuideStar that is Candid.  We'll also have a panel discussion featuring experts from the nonprofit world, workshops on new nonprofit technology,  and speed networking with nonprofit experts.

There will be a massive nonprofit booksale, raffles throughout the day, and refreshments galore.

Bring your business cards and join us for an afternoon of community engagement, learning, food, and fun!
