This session was sold out June 15, so call early for reservations. The workshop will be from 11:45 to 1:30 on Friday. Seating is limited, so please RSVP. Part 2 of the series is July 15 and will cover researching grant funding for your program, building strategic alliances to leverage opportunities, and enhancing your programs to receive funds without sacrificing your mission.
