December 2015 GPF News

Thanks for meeting us in St. Louis!

What a fantastic conference the Grant Professionals Association held in St. Louis last month! Thanks to Kelli and Barb and all of GPA’s volunteers for pulling it together. We’re already looking forward to seeing everyone in Atlanta in 2016!

And, thank you to everyone who supported the Grant Professionals Foundation. The 2015 Silent Auction was a smashing success. You invested $6,569.21 to support grant professionals with scholarships in 2016. These funds will help more scholars attend their first conference, sit for the GPC, and remain or become members of the GPA and our chapters. Thank you!
