Where did I put it and when was it last updated? A tracking methodology for busy grant professionals

This session will provide a case study of how a grant professional can utilize methods and available technology solutions that are commonly available to track the content for the most common elements of a grant proposal.

This workshop will be aimed at grant professionals who are managing a large or growing number of proposals at their organization. Grant professionals often manage multiple programs and write many proposals to support each of these programs every year.

These grant professionals will learn:
*how to create comprehensive content for each of the common grant proposals elements
*strategies for developing shortened versions of these elements for online applications
*methods for managing this content and all the common grant application attachments.
*time saving strategies for tracking when content has been updated and when it should be refreshed.
*how to label, tag and manage your elements for quick retrieval by your entire fundraising staff
