Wow! It's Been Three Months Already? - A Note from the GPA CEO
By: Mike Chamberlain, CAE
It hardly seems I have been with you at GPA for three months as time has certainly flown by. In my short time here, I have been impressed with the staff and volunteer leadership of the organization from Board members to the individuals who serve on various committees to the local chapter leadership. I met many of you at the Annual Conference last year and I am continuing to meet more GPA members through social media, on conference calls, and at events (most recently at the AFP Annual Conference). The one thing that I continue to hear is how important GPA is to you and the common bond you share as grant professionals. I truly understand this and will continue to work with the staff and volunteer leadership to strengthen your association.
