Are you a Lone Grant Writer?
This week on Grantchat Amanda Day is sharing her tips and insights and asking the community to share their questions and tips on building relationships when you are the (cue the music) Lone Grant Writer.
I met Amanda through the Grant Professionals Association and our involvement in various committees and boards. Amanda Day, GPC is a self-proclaimed book nerd, grant geek, and, as I can attest, social butterfly. She is a trainer for Grant Writing USA, using her 15 years of grant research, writing, and management experience to teach others. She joined the Grant Professionals Certification Institute Board in 2008, having served as Treasurer, Vice-President, and President. She believes relationships make the world go round, both socially and professionally.
