Southern Grants Forum 2017
Tue, Apr 18, 2017, 9:00 AM – Thu, Apr 20, 2017, 3:00 PM EDT
New and unexpected challenges await grants-funded organizations in 2017. The Southern Grants Forum 2017 will help all members of the grant-funded community (nonprofits, governmental entities, colleges and universities, tribal organizations, hospitals, and others) face those challenges with confidence. This year's special edition of the Southern Grants Forum will feature nearly two dozen workshops over three days that will prepare both new and experienced grants professionals and their organizations to safely navigate the challenges and seize the opportunities in grants management in 2017 and beyond.
Meet the Challenge
At the Southern Grants Forum 2017, you will engage with over a dozen experts as well as colleagues from across the region while exploring the topics that are most important for effective and efficient grants management today. The three-day conference will feature informative and entertaining sessions divided into multiple tracks exploring federal grants, fiscal integrity, information technology, governance and organizational management, human resources, and programmatic issues. The Southern Grants Forum will also discuss recent developments affecting the OMB Uniform Grants Guidance (the "Super Circular"), nonprofit accounting and auditing, the Head Start Program Performance Standards, and health care reform. During the Southern Grants Forum 2017, attendees will be able to get answers to their most important questions about grants management, legal issues, human resources, technology, and accounting.
By attending the Southern Grants Forum, you will learn how your organization can not only meet today's challenges but continue to succeed into the future despite the ever-changing environment in which all grants-funded entities now find themselves. Register today and join us in Atlanta from April 18 through 20 for the 2017 edition of the Southern Grants Forum!
Attendees of the 2017 Southern Grants Forum can earn up to 18 hours of Continuing Professional Education (CPE) credits in accordance with the standards of the National Registry of CPE Sponsors.
