As we move into a new season, packing away summer vacation items and focusing on school schedules, and the availability of all things pumpkin-flavored, we are experiencing changes at GrantChat.
In the last 4-months, we have made shifts with Grantchat and Smartegrants behind the scenes. Diane has been transitioning out of her role as co-owner and co-moderator of SmartEGrants and GrantChat to fully dedicate her time and energy to her grant consulting firm, DH Leonard Consulting & Grant Writing Services, LLC. Diane will remain an active community member, and often a guest – in fact, we already have Diane’s first guest session scheduled for October 20th to talk about Inspiration & Motivation.
We are grateful for all of the time and energy Diane has given to building the Grantchat community since co-founding it with Jo in early of 2013. Diane has enjoyed seeing the Grantchat community grow and flourish. She loves the diversity each guest brings to the conversation and delights each time a Grantchat community member steps-up as a #grantchat ambassador.
Diane and Jo are also excited to be co-sponsoring the social media gathering at the Grant Professionals Association National Conference on Thursday, November 12th (more details to come!) and will continue their GPA Conference tradition of organizing a Morning Walk/Run group.
We look forward to supporting and collaborating with each other and interacting with the #grantchat community in our new roles!
