GPA Survey of Salaries & Benefits
GPA Survey of Salaries & Benefits - Please respond!
Have you ever wondered how much a grant professional gets paid and/or what benefits are offered? GPA answers these questions and many more in the GPA Survey of Salaries and Benefits. The survey results rely on your input to provide accurate and reliable data that can be used by individuals and managers to review salary and benefit information for themselves and their staff. This information is a benefit not only to you as a GPA member, but to our association and the grants profession. We know you are busy and only need a little bit of your time to make sure this valuable resource has the most current information. Take the survey by April 29 and provide us with your email address to be entered into a chance to win a free year membership to GPA.
I co-teach a grant writing class through our local chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals. Each time we teach it, we spend about three of the seven sessions on needs statements. Why?
Grant training is a valuable skill-set in the grants profession. As the first person to become a GPA Approved Trainer, I can attest to the benefits of receiving this recognition for teaching grant knowledge and skills. I encourage others to apply for the program if you are an experienced grant professional who has developed and taught grant courses or workshops. In addition to the GPC credential, becoming a GPA Approved Trainer has offered a number of other benefits.
The following joke encapsulates my feelings about data. Question: “What makes you happy?” Answer: “Data.” Question: “No, no, what makes you feel fulfilled? Complete?” Pause. “Good data.”
