Great Lakes Virtual Chapter
Share |



Welcome to the Great Lakes Chapter of the Grant Professionals Association.  We are the first virtual chapter to connect grant professionals across the country.

We have recently begun recruiting members in the Great Lakes area and welcome members who reside in any of the GPA geographic regions to join our chapter.


Chapter Meetings

We invite you to attend our monthly meetings, typically held on the 4th Tuesday of the month from 3:30-4:30 pm Eastern. All meetings will be conducted virtually through the phone and internet. This is a great opportunity to connect, exchange ideas, and discuss topics relating to the grants profession.


Membership:     Annual chapter dues are $25

We welcome your interest and participation in the Great Lakes Chapter. Please direct all inquiries to Chapter President Manda Rice at
