June Webinar Series

GPA Arizona Founding Chapter member, Dr. Michael Lesiecki, is presenting a two part webinar series in June for GPA National on managing grants development.

Part One on June 8 focuses on Finding a Qualified Evaluator at the Proposal Stage
There are many approaches to finding a qualified evaluator – which is right for you? A modest project with a light budget may need to look locally whereas a big DoL budget may face bidding issues. In any event you often have to name an evaluator in your proposal. This webinar will point the way to quality evaluation sources and help you work with an evaluator to structure the letter of commitment and evaluation section for the proposal. A must have for today’s competitive proposals. After this webinar you will also know how to manage the evaluator relationship prior to the submission.

Part Two on June 15 focuses on Creating Dashboards for Grants Development and Management
Today the phrase “evidence–based” is king. And we are always asked to show data that supports our claims of prior work in our proposals or for accomplished objectives in our grant reports. Dashboards are the key to creating evidence-based cultures in your development office or out in your funded projects. You do not need fancy software to create a customized dashboard, excel does fine thank you. In this webinar you will learn lessons gained from industry where dashboards are the norm. Within one day of this webinar you can start your own dashboard to help track and support your development office. This webinar is full of examples that you can relate to and will help you to avoid some common dashboard pitfalls.

Did you know GPA National webinars are free for GPA members? You can watch the webinars live or access recorded webinars later through your GPA National account.
