1st Annual Partnership Appreciation Holiday Charity Social

December 12, 2019

Management Concepts was pleased to recognize the hard work and dedication of all of our partner organizations — including GPA — by hosting our first-ever partnership appreciation event. All members of our partner organizations were invited to attend and enjoy an evening of refreshments, networking, and festivities, while also supporting a good cause. This year we selected So Others Might Eat (S.O.M.E.) . We raised money and collected much-needed non-perishable food and toiletry items to help fight homelessness and poverty.

GPA Annual Conference

November 7-10, 2018

The 2018 GPA Annual Conference took place in chilly Chicago, IL, and our promotional winter gloves were a great success! But it wasn’t just the giveaways that brought GPA members to our booth. We were busy informing attendees about the variety of grants course offerings available, while also affording them an opportunity to speak one-on-one with our two presenters.

Lahaja Furaha, Practice Director, Human Capital Services, presented “Culture — A Driver of Organizational Performance and Engagement” incorporating interactive elements throughout the session, which engaged the audience and brought a lot of energy to an early Friday morning session.

Erica Preston, Product Director for Grants, employed her usual tongue-in-cheek humor in her session “Washington: Swimming through the Federal Grants Swamp,” which included the latest developments and ins-and-outs of grant management in the federal government.
