PSGA Presents the 22nd Annual Conference:
Awakening Your Case!

Wednesday, Oct. 29, 2014

The Puget Sound Grantwriters Association invites you to join your peers for “Awakening Your Case!,” our annual daylong conference, featuring practical, 
hands-on presentations on a wealth of topics relevant to you, the grantwriting professional.

Highlights include:

  • Keynote speaker Sonya Campion’s master class, “The Leadership Required for a Powerful Case Statement.”
  • Sylvie McGee’s “You’ve Got the Money, Now Stay Out of Jail,” a follow up to her Oct. 28 specialized training session on applying for Federal grants.
  • Vu Le’s “Elements of Culturally Competent Grantwriting,” an honest discussion about “serving the underserved.
  • The first-ever “PSGA Smackdown: Transformational vs. Traditional Philanthropy"—Are you on Team Tran or Team Trad?

And there’s plenty more where these come from—panels, workshops, and forums; the opportunity to meet representatives from some of the region’s most important foundation and corporate donors; and time to meet and mingle with your fellow grantwriters.

New to the field? Some sessions are perfect for building research and writing skills.
