Meet the Grantmakers - in collaboration with Nonprofit Central
Wednesday, October 3, 2018
9 a.m. -12:30 p.m. 
Monroe County Public Library, Meeting Rooms 1B and 1C (1st floor) 
In this annual event,we are focusing on grant administration with a panel of people who deal with grants almost every day. It is important for you to know some tips on grant administration from both sides, people who receive grants and people who award grants. The second half of our program is focused on Speed Networking with six local funders. We realize that not every organization will be relevant for you, but one might be relevant to someone you know. Each speaker will talk briefly, but each will provide contact info so you can connect with them later. The structure for each presentation is that each group will get 10-12 minutes with half as an informal presentation and half as a Q&A.
