When you come network with the GrantWriting Power Hour group, plan to spend time talking about your organization, sharing samples of grant funded projects, discuss major funders, etc., and any project ideas that could be a collaboration with other members. There will also be months where guest speakers will be brought in.
History: In July 2011 several grant proposal writing professionals in the Cedar Valley decided that they would benefit from an opportunity to learn from one another, so the Grant Proposal Writing Learning Network of the Cedar Valley Nonprofit Association was developed. In 2018, a revamping took place and renamed the group to GrantWriting Power Hour and a more formal agenda and meeting dates were established.
