GPA NJ is proud to announce that Chrissy Demarco, MSM, CFRE from New Jersey will be serving as the new Region 6 Representative for GPA!
Regional Representatives work closely with National and the chapter leaders by doing some of the following things:
-They act as a liaison with Headquarters and direct chapters to resources.
-They can share successful chaptering practices among chapters.
-They can help by sharing best practices from other chapters, monitoring chapter activity and attendance, and acting as a support system for new chapter officers.
-They attend and assist at the Chapter Leader meetings at the Annual Conference and the April Leader Conference each year with attendance and some costs covered by GPA.
GPA also has a budget to ensure that Reps can visit with chapters in person as well as help to establish new chapters within the region.


Get Connected – GRANTZONE

Your GPA membership provides you with access to GrantZone – a place to participate in discussions, ask questions of other GPA members, and share resources. Each NJ Chapter member is automatically a member of the New Jersey Chapter Community. You can join other communities, like Grant Consultants, K-12 Education, Healthcare, and many more.

It’s a fantastic resource and easy to use. You can access GrantZone from the GPA website, or go directly here and enter your GPA username and password. Members can control the frequency of messages they receive (real time, daily digest, no email). If you aren’t seeing any messages, check your settings as well as your spam folder.
