Description: The MN GMN Chapter is hosting a meeting on February 13, 2013 that will focus on Tool and Resources available through the GMN Website.  This meeting will be more of a “How to” and “Learn More” discussion on how to use the Discussion Board/Online Community, what is the Body of Knowledge and the GM Guide. 

  • Discussion Board/Online Community – We will discuss several topics ranging from How to start a discussion or respond to how to look up contact information for a colleague in your area and how to setting your email notifications. 
  • Body of Knowledge is a guiding framework to assist Grants Managers with more specialized and leading-edge knowledge. It establishes the shared framework and common language required for an improved flow of knowledge.
  • GM Guide - The GM Guide is a comprehensive resource for anyone who performs grants management tasks, whether your grantmaking organization is large or small; private, corporate or community; operating or non-operating. The GM Guide leads you through the entire grantmaking process; shares common practices, templates, and resources; and provides critical information for both beginners and seasoned grants managers on key functions. 

We are pleased to have two speakers for this meeting: Miriam Hankins, Manager, GMN Membership and Chapter Services and Cathy Manovi, Grants Administrator from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and the GM Guide Co-Chair.

This meeting will be available via webinar through Ready Talk.
