Benefits of Becoming a Member of the NJ Chapter
The NJ Chapter is home to an extraordinary group of male and female grant professionals working throughout the State of New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania. Mingling with NJ Chapter members at meetings, conferences, and other events is sure to improve your skills in grantsmanship and grants management. As members, we often share common challenges and solutions with one another!
In addition to being a chance to network and build your personal and professional network, bi-monthly membership meetings and our online social community provide an opportunity to discuss issues relevant to grantsmanship and nonprofit development as a whole, topics related to chapter activities, and challenges associated with the work you do every day. We also host the annual GPA Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference, widely acknowledged as one of the best professional development events in the Northeast for grant writers.
A few items have changed from when the video was first recorded; 1) GPA National has more than 10 mentors ready for a mentee, and 2) A mentee will first make contact with potential mentor.
