We are excited to have a very special guest, Mike Chamberlain, on Grantchat, Tuesday 01/27/2015. What makes Mike special? Well, he is the Grant Professionals Association new CEO, as of January 1, 2015. We had the opportunity and pleasure of getting to know Mike at the GPA National Conference (#GPACONF14) last October. Mike comes to our association with a wealth of leadership experience with for-profit and not-for-profit organizations. You can find out more about Mike here.
As the GPA Social Media Chair and Vice Chair, we (Diane and Jo) were thrilled to have Mike actively participating in social media throughout the conference and even assisting our members sign up on various platforms. In fact, Mike was active throughout the conference! Mike ran with the GPA Conference Walk/Run group, he joined in at our GPA Board Meeting, he attended every plenary session and many workshops, and he joined in the after-hours events including our “#Grantchat Social- Meet the People Behind the Profiles” and our “Social Media Hands-On Social Event.” Mike won us over – time and time, again.
So, we are thrilled that he has taken the helm of the Grant Professionals Association and delighted to have Mike join GrantChat as our guest this week.
The format for GrantChat will be a little different than our usual format. Our goal for this chat is to introduce Mr. Chamberlain to the Grantchat community and for the Grantchat community to get to know Mike. Most of our questions will be for Mike to answer. Please respond to and direct additional questions to Mike at @GPA_CEO throughout our chat.
