Got GPC? The Thrill Behind Those Three Little Letters
On the fence about whether the GPC is worth your time and money?  Come hear from a grant professional who benefited from this credential. The Grant Professional Certified exam has been offered by the Grant Professionals Certification Institute since 2007.  In 2012 the exam migrated from a paper and pencil exam to an electronic exam.  This course will touch on the registration process and competencies tested through the exam. The majority of the workshop will focus on the benefits of using the GPC.  A panel of GPCs will explain how the credential helped them attract additional clients as a consultant, receive a promotion and/or raise with their current employer, successfully land a new job, be called on as an expertise by their peers, attend professional development programs (like the GPA conference), and/or teach new grant workshops.

Holistic Grant Development: Using Your Multiple Intelligences in Work and Life
Why are some grant writers great at developing a compelling statement of need but find it challenging to cultivate funders in person? Why do some grant writers excel at federal applications while others shine at corporate or private proposals (or vice versa)? Why do some people rely on their gut (instinct, faith, etc.), while others don’t? The theory of multiple intelligences can answer these questions. According to Dr. Howard Gardner, a Harvard psychologist and professor of neuroscience, people interact with the world using nine kinds of intelligence: linguistic, logical/mathematical, musical/rhythmic, bodily/kinesthetic, spatial, naturalist, intrapersonal, interpersonal, and existential. Each person has a unique profile, and that profile determines how we respond to the situations in the questions above.
 
Using the multiple intelligences theory and other testing tools (Myers-Briggs, StrengthsFinder, The Big Five, and Enneagram), learn how you can use maximize on your strengths and find opportunities for growth. Join two experienced grant writer as they discuss the different forms of intelligence, how they are useful in grant development, how to find the intelligences that are your strengths, and how to develop multiple intelligences. We will also discuss the practical usefulness of Intuitive Intelligence that is not covered in Gardner’s theory.

Grant Mistakes: Lessons from Experienced Grant Professionals
As grant professionals, we work to avoid all errors in grant applications from math, to grammar, to citations.  However, we are all human, and errors happen within applications.  Often they are minor and overlooked by a potential funder.  Then there are the times that such an error can jeopardize a funding award.  It has happened to us all.  Grant Mistakes: Lessons from Experienced Grant Professionals focuses on how seasoned grant professionals have learned from previous mistakes and how they have successfully continued to move their organization/client forward after such mistakes.

The objective of Grant Mistakes: Lessons from Experienced Grant Professionals is to provide case studies of “lessons learned” from a panel of experienced grant professionals and provide an open forum for sharing on solutions for mistakes experienced and long-term lessons.

The Value of Doing Good
What is Social Return on Investment? SROI is a calculation that describes the monetary value associated with your organization’s impact and the cost to society if your nonprofit did not exist (i.e. resources saved). Why is SROI important? Learning how to calculate and communicate SROI to grant makers, donors, civic leaders, elected officials, and corporations can increase your fundraising success. Why? Because SROI is a calculation based in the for-profit sector, and we can use their methods to communicate more effectively—speak the language of—funding decision-makers. It is another tool for telling our stories more effectively.
