    Do you ever find that you’re on your third cup of coffee at 3 p.m., sitting at your desk in your pajamas, thinking: is this what all the other grant consultants are doing?

    Are there times when you feel like you’re winging it, times when you think that you gave away the farm, and other times when you wish you could just ask someone:  what would YOU do?

    This informal breakfast is an opportunity to share your concerns, questions, and ideas, and get feedback on anything related to The Magical World of Grant Procurement.

    If you are a grant consultant or thinking about consulting and would like to connect with others who struggle with the same issues, then please join members of the Grant Professionals of Lower Hudson on February 27 from 8:30 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. to connect, refresh, and power on. 

    This event is open to all. There is no fee; just pay for your own breakfast!

    We look forward to seeing you!

    Guest Speaker: Dr. Gerald Ardito, Professor, PACE University

    Many of us spend the majority of our time on our computers. For those of us with limited IT or professional development, we often struggle to keep up with the latest and greatest timesavers.

    In this interactive workshop, Dr. Ardito will present technology tools that busy workers can use to save time.  Attendees are welcome to bring their laptops and follow along and log onto websites or download tools, or just watch along and follow-up with the PowerPoint the presenter will share.

    To make sure the workshop addresses attendees' needs, those registered will receive a short survey indicating what areas they are most concerned about such as collaborative document preparation, spreadsheets, time management, project management, billing or other.  

    The workshop will cover a lot of ground that we anticipate will be relevant and timely!


    8:30 am: Registration & Networking & Coffee

    9:00 - 10:30 am: Program
