Question Preview: Getting the Most Out of a Conference
As we are all packing up and heading to St Louis for the Grant Professionals Association Conference, aka #GPACONF15, 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 at the GPA Conference 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 get the most of the GPA Conference #GPACONF15 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 #GPACONF15 and are looking forward to connecting with Grantchatters in person and via social media throughout the conference.
