Conference is done. Thanks to all who participated!

The M365 Chicago Virtual Conference brought to you by VEEAM is a free online, one day event on Friday, November 13 2020. We will have sessions with speakers from the area and many favorites from around the world. This event is free for all wanting to attend. Come join us as we talk about the many different pieces of Microsoft 365 including Azure.

We will be leveraging the Microsoft Teams Community Tenant and talk about how we (and you) can use it. Session recordings will be posted to our Youtube channel, after the event. Please note that some sessions may not be available if we are notified of any content restrictions by the speakers (none so far!)

The M365 Chicago Virtual Conference is a joint effort with Veeam and our other sponsors (thank you!), several Chicago M365 focused user groups, the technical team from the M365 Virtual Marathon and members of the M365 community.

Our full speaker and sessions list can be found above - we have keynotes from key Microsoft employees and global thought leaders. Check the schedules in progress for more information on this as well as refresh this page for the latest!

Partnership with Children First Fund

The M365 Chicago organizing team is very proud to announce that all proceeds from the conference will benefit Chicago children through the Children First Fund.

As the Chicago Public Schools Foundation, the Children First Fund works to promote equity in education. Chicago Public Schools is the third largest school district in the country. We know that talent is equally distributed among our 335,000 CPS students--but opportunity and resources are not. We wake up every day on a mission to improve the lives and futures of CPS students.
