On 11/11/14 we will be joined by members of the GPA Grant Professionals Appreciation and Recognition Committee to talk about the ways we can enhance the prestige of our profession and celebrate the contribution grant writers make to numerous institutions – non-profit, academic, government and corporate and private foundations.
If you haven’t had the opportunity to take the Grant Professionals Appreciation and Recognition Survey then you are in luck! The survey is still open (but will be closed soon after our chat). You can find the survey at this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/GrantProDay
If you have a blog post or have an article that you would like to share about the concept, we would love for you to do so in the comment section or by using the #grantchat on the social media network of your choice.
