Resolve to energize your professional life by taking advantage of one or more of the opportunities listed below:
I will be teaching the popular Grants 101 class at several of the branch libraries in the Dayton Metro Library System this winter. The class will be offered Monday, February 6, from 6:30 to 8pm at the Vandalia Branch library, Monday, March 6, from 6:00 to 7:30 pm at the Kettering/Moraine Branch and Tuesday, April 4 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at the New London Branch. This class is suitable for those who are charged with writing grants for their organization. Attendees leave this class with a plan of action that includes whom to approach, how much to ask for, characteristics of a great proposal, and contact information for the funding foundations. This class is heavily attended and there is always a waiting list. Registration is required for the class. If you know you can’t attend, please remove yourself from the registration page so someone else can attend. Also, only register for one session of Grants 101. This is the same material being presented at multiple sites. Your registration will be cancelled if you register for multiple dates. Don’t miss out! Register here.
