NGP Meeting, June 10th 1.30pm-3pm

The National Grants Partnership is holding its next meeting on June 10th in downtown DC. The agenda includes Terry Hurst and Andrea Brandon discussing the Transparency Act subaward pilot, which should be quite interesting!

We’re taking over the NGP web site and webcasts this month, and we’re having a few teething troubles. The web site should be updated with the agenda and meeting details this week. In the meantime, click below and you’ll see the agenda on the next page. Remember, you can always be up-to-date with all grants management events by subscribing to the Grants Management Events Calendar, here [for Outlook/iCal/etc. users] or here [for a regular web page].
