Quotes from Conference Attendees
- "My first conference was in Nashville, TN in 2006 and I have attended every conference since… I had been looking for years for the right “fit” with a professional association. I attended fundraising, non-profit, and research conferences, but none felt right. As I am sure you are aware there are other grant related conferences, but what I like most about the GPA conference is the workshops are presented by real grant practitioners. I have sat in on grant sessions at other conferences and discovered (rather quickly) the instructor was sharing his/her theory of grant work, grant-writing, grant administration, etc…. I want to learn from the very best the profession has to offer, which is why I attend the GPA conferences every year no matter where it is hosted." - Danny Blitch, GPC
- "The convention is fabulous: lots of great workshops, great networking. Worth every penny!" - Patty Ford
