Strategic Framework and 2012 Priorities

The GMN Board is pleased to share our Strategic Framework which defines the future direction for GMN and lays out an ambitious set of priorities for 2012.  We thank all of the members who participated in online community discussions, focus groups, and surveys to inform this work. 

GMN is Looking for Volunteers! Members Only

As an active volunteer, you will expand your skills sets and knowledge, build new professional relationships, use your creative talents in unique ways, and boost your resume with additional responsibilities and leadership roles. Not to mention…you will help to make a difference in the grants management field. 

We’ve Moved!

Please update your files to reflect GMN’s new address which is 1666 K Street, NW Suite 440, Washington, DC  20006.  Our phone number (888-GMN-1996) remains unchanged.
