A little news you can use!
Clubs, have the members you assigned to work on your 2018-19 district or global grant application register for the Grant Management Seminar (GMS) which will be held on March 24, 2018, Registration is at the dacdb.calendar by scrolling down to the March 24th date. It will again be held at the Colonial Heritage Club in Williamsburg, Virginia. It will be from 8:30 until Noon and the price of $25 includes a Full Southern Breakfast.
It is important that a club send at least a couple of grant assigned people so that if one person moves, gets sick, or goes off on a honeymoon, there is another club member who knows the drill.
Last year a very well known club was declined on the first pass. Why? Because the grant writer had not submitted the MOU (Memorandum of Understanding). Why? Because the grant writer was not one of the three people from the club who attended the GMS. Happy ending though, the club received its grant on the second pass.
Remember that the grant application process is totally online. No FEDEX, no faxes, no personal hand deliveries to the Grants Grants Chair. If you want money for that special project, accept all the training and suggestions you can get.
A GMS webinar will be held in April but it is still in the planning stages and the registration is notyet available for it.
