The GPA Annual Conference
We have made the decision to convert the 2020 GPA Annual Conference to a fully online event. The GPA Board of Directors and staff based this decision on member feedback and current public health guidance regarding COVID-19. We believe this is the most responsible path forward for our attendees, presenters, exhibitors, and the communities you serve.
The GPA staff and the Professional Growth and Development Committee are working hard to make sure the 2020 GPA Annual Conference delivers the educational content you expect while looking for creative ways to help you connect with your fellow grant professionals. We are exploring new ways to ensure the GPA Annual Conference remains ‘Where the Grant People Meet’ to give you the opportunity to make and keep connections with your colleagues.
