I wanted to let you know about two conferences I’ll be participating in during the month of May. They’re both great deals, so if you’re in the area, I hope to see you there!
Thursday, May 10 — Professional Development Conference, Cincinnati, OH
Hosted by the Greater Cincinnati chapter of the Grant Professionals Association, this half-day conference features a keynote followed by your choice of two breakout sessions. I’m honored to present both the keynote – “Building Relationships, Building Brands” (TM) – and one of the breakout sessions – “The Grant Readiness Audit” (TM). The other breakout session will be led by the venerable Johna Rodgers. She’ll be introducing everyone to the new e-version of the GPC exam!
So it’s a half-day of great stuff, all at rock bottom prices! Attendance is limited, so sign up right away!
I’ll be in town from until May 12, so if you’re in the area, be sure to reach out. I’d love to meet you!

Early Bird registration closes on April 24. Registration closes on May 4.
Monday, May 21 — 2012 GPA MidAtlantic Grants Conference, Monroe Township, NJ
Hosted by the New Jersey and Southeastern PA chapters of the Grant Professionals Association, this full-day conference features two keynotes – one by PSEG Foundation representatives Sheila Rostiac and Vaughn McKoy and one by motivational speaker Debi Silber, a.k.a. The Mojo Coach. Believe me, Debi’s energy is contagious, so if you need a pick me up, you’re guaranteed to get one if you come!
In addition to the keynotes, you’ll have your choice of up to 20 workshops, led by grant pros from throughout the MidAtlantic region, and even a few other parts of the country. In its sixth year, there really is nothing else like it! And since I was a part of the team that helped recruit many of this year’s new speakers (through For GrantWriters Only and other networking), I don’t think anyone will be disappointed! Me – I’ll be presenting “Building Relationships, Building Brands” (TM) again, and one of my project partners – Marti Fisher – will be addressing “The Grant Readiness Audit” (TM).
Again, if you plan to be in town, please let me know! I’d love to get together.
