The purpose of Grant Professionals of New York City is to support the community of professional grant writers committed to serving the nonprofit community in the New York City metro area. Network with and learn from your fellow grant writing colleagues in a warm, engaging setting. Candid will be hosting the meeting.

Join us for our first 2020 meeting!


2:00-2:15 - Welcome from the Grant Professionals of NYC & Candid

2:15-2:30 - Grant Professionals Toolkit - International grant seeking

2:30-3:45 - Workshop: “Drop Everything!” - A Workshop on Handling Grants Emergencies

3:45-4:15 - Networking

More on our workshop:

We’ll wrestle with the kind of challenges that suddenly pop up in your inbox. We used to call these “in-basket exercises.” You come to work one morning, take a sip of coffee, open the computer and WHAM! You’re confronted with an emergency. Forget what you’d planned for the day, you’ve got to tackle this right now. We’ll surprise you with three emergencies to choose from and we’ll work in small groups to brainstorm how to handle them. Full disclosure: we don’t have the answer key. How you manage grants emergencies is a matter of your own work style, your organization and your own playbook. It will be instructive to learn from each other!

We’ll start at 2pm sharp so please plan to arrive early to find your seat and settle in.
