Question Preview: Make the Most Out of a Conference

As we are all packing up and heading to Portland for the Grant Professionals Association Conference, aka #GPACONF14, we want to get the most out of our time together.

We know you have your own question, such as,

“What can we bring back to our organizations?

“Who do I want to meet in person that I’ve met on #Grantchat?

“What are the most recent best practices in grant seeking or grants management?”

“Which exhibitors can give me a hands-on experience with their grant management or grant seeking tool?”

and many more!

This week we are going to help each other the most of the #GPACONF14 and other professional conferences. Conferences give you a chance to connect to amazing people and provide you with opportunities to grow your professional network! We are super excited about #GPACONF14 and are looking forward to connecting with Grantchatters in person and via social media throughout the conference.

If you have a blog post, e-book or other resource to improve the value of attending a conference that you would like to share with the #grantchat community be sure to have your link ready and share it during the chat!
