This week, Bethany Turner, GPC, is leading us in a discussion on earning your GPC. Bethany has been on her GPC Journey with the SmartEGrants Blueprints for the GPC Community this year. The GrantChat and SmartEGrants team gets a lot of questions about earning the GPC and the Blueprints program. You can hear first-hand from one of the newest GPC (and a founding SmartEs member) about the road to earning her GPC. Bethany earned her GPC in September and she is happy to answer questions about her experience, tips, resources, and what it means to be one of the few hundred grant professionals who have successfully earned the GPC.
She is the grant coordinator for a civic theatre and a consultant. Bethany has been a grant professional for five years. She loves reading (seriously – she posts her library book haul nearly every week! If you need a book recommendation, she’s ready to help), traveling, and watching football. Bethany has been a #Grantchat ambassador and recently came on board with the GrantChat team for some of the behind the scenes prep for our weekly community chats and connections.
