Chapter History
The North Florida Chapter of The Grant Professionals Association (GPA) was formed in January 2014 to promote the mission of the GPA on a local level.  The initial officers were: President - Phyllis Renninger, Vice President - Angela Strain, Treasurer - Melissa Conger, and Secretary - Mike Langton. Previously, an informal group of grant writers had been meeting several times a year and, as the group grew, the decision was made to form a local GPA chapter.
