Tysons Corner, VA (PRWEB) March 11, 2015
Management Concepts, the nation’s premier provider of professional development, performance improvement, and talent management solutions for the public sector, today announced its partnership with the Grant Professionals Association (GPA) and its International Grant Professionals Week, March 16-20, 2015. Grant Professionals Week recognizes and celebrates the work of grant professionals, who serve as administrators, consultants, managers, grant-makers and writers.
Every day, grant professionals work diligently, usually behind the scenes, to seek grant opportunities, administer projects and implement important programs for the benefit of society’s disadvantaged and underserved people. These talented professionals are dedicated to providing the highest standard of ethics, quality program development, thoughtful project implementation and wise financial stewardship. Often, those standards extend beyond the mere financial and include capacity support, long term solutions to challenges, fundraising assistance, expert project management, sustainable programming and so much more.
“Grant professionals do much more than write grants – we are community leaders! We are managers, administrators, consultants, grant-makers, and we write grant proposals,” stated Debbie DiVirgilio, President of GPA.
Monday through Friday of Grant Professionals Week will address different aspects of the grant profession:
- Monday, March 16th – Grant Profession Education & Awareness Day
- Tuesday, March 17th – GPA Chapter and Community Event Day
- Wednesday, March 18th – International Event Day
- Thursday, March 19th – Thank you! Grant Entrepreneurs, Partners and Volunteer Day
- Friday, March 20th – Grant Professionals Appreciation Day
Management Concepts is proud to serve the grants management community with its professional and workforce development solutions, including the industry-leading Grants Management Certificate Program™. For more information, visit http://www.ManagementConcepts.com/Grants.
