Getting the Most Out of Conference

The Grant Professionals Association (GPA) national conference #GPAConf16 in Atlanta, Georgia, is coming up soon November 9-12, so we invited a very special guest the CEO of GPA Mike Chamberlain, CAE to walk us through how to get the most out of a conference. Conferences give you a chance to connect to amazing people and provide you with opportunities to grow your professional network! Mike has been the GPA CEO for almost two years now and is a Certified Association Executive. He has been active in several local non-profit organizations and associations, serving on the boards of the Greater Kansas City Postal Customer Council, Kansas City Meetings Industry Council, and the Kansas City Society of Association

Mike is a committed professional who offers an impressive balance of being able to efficiently and effectively handle necessary day-to-day operations while still being able to focus on the strategic future for an organization.
