Actually, there were home fries served with the full English breakfast at the Grant Management Seminar (GMS) on Saturday, March 19 at the Colonial Heritage Clubhouse in Williamsburg. OK, it wasn’t a full English … there were no beans, but everything expected in a Southern breakfast was to be had.  The food was great, the room was full, and the presenters were well prepared.

Wayne Boggs and Grant CosingThe GMS met all of the requirements for a club in attendance to be eligible to apply for or participate in a global grant.  In our district only global grants require attendance at a GMS, but the application process, grant criteria, and reporting requirements are very similar for a district grant. The information imparted at the GMS  prepared the clubs in attendance for the application, execution, reporting, and close out of either type of grant.

If your club was not represented, there will be two more opportunities to learn what you need to learn to pursue a district or global grant.  On April 2 and on May 7  there will be additional GMS presentations.  Both will be at the Old Dominion University Peninsula Center, Suite 2200,  600 Butler Farm Road in Hampton 22666 and both will also be available as webinars.  The April GMS will focus on district grants.  The program will include demonstrating the district grant module and describing how to develop a district grant.  The May GMS will focus on global grants. Both are conveniently scheduled prior to the district grant application deadline of May 16.

The registrations for these seminars will be available very, very soon so watch dacdb.com and have your club representatives register soonest for one or both of these events.   More information may be obtained from DRFCC Jim Probsdorfer or from District Grants Chair SuAnne Bryant.
