Seeking New Leadership

GPA Grant News Seeks New Leadership

The GPA Publications Committee seeks to identify a new editor for the weekly GPA Grant News to provide editorial support to the authors, GPA staff, and committee. The GPA Publications Committee offers a chance for professional growth, and our work is both challenging and satisfying. If you have strong editorial skills and a desire to serve as a leader for this publication, please read the following descriptions:

Editor:
The online GPA Grant News is published weekly for members of the Grant Professionals Association. The editor serves on the Publications Committee, works with GPA staff to develop the annual calendar of articles, works with authors, and GPA Staff liaison to facilitate the weekly e-newsletter. This volunteer position requires approximately 1-2 hours a week, with more intensive attention at times. In addition to editing experience, the editor must have excellent time-management, people management, and communication skills. Editing (of articles and the e-newsletter) is one of the responsibilities of this position, so knowledge of grammar and syntax is required.

How To Apply:
If you are interested in this position, please submit your resume and a cover letter to kelli@grantprofessionals.org.

In your letter, describe:

  1. Your pertinent background and experience relating to the position description;
  2. Your motivation for applying; and
  3. How you will integrate this volunteer position into your life.
The selection process will include a screening interview, an interview with members of the publications committee, and an editing exercise. We are a friendly group, so don’t let the process intimidate you. We enjoy working as a team to make the GPA publications as supportive and beneficial as possible to our readers.

The application process is now open and will remain open until February 14, 2020. 

Thank you for your interest in joining our Publications team!
