Chapter E-mail

We invite all grant writers and managers in Central Ohio to attend our monthly, brown bag educational meetings. Meetings offer a great way to meet your colleagues, make friends, and learn something new.

Every month we cover different grant topics. Past examples include: presentations by government and foundation grant officials, best practice trainings, group learning experiences, an annual review of Central Ohio funders, and our annual National GPA Conference review. Participants who join the Grant Professionals Association and our Chapter receive job and consulting opportunity notices, and attend our chapter meetings for free.

Please email us to request that you be put on our monthly meeting RSVP list. Suggestions for meeting topics are always welcome, too.


Chapter Meetings
 
Chapter meetings are generally, but not always, held the second Thursday of each month from 12noon-1:30PM at Alvis House, 2100 Stella Ct., Columbus, OH  43215. Sometimes we hold our monthly meeting on a different day and at a different location. Our RSVP email notices will keep you informed of any change. Programs last one hour with the last half hour allowed for casual networking and discussion with presenters. Non-member fee is $10 (cash or check, please; receipts are available). Members attend for free.
