Skills & Strategies for Grantmakers Workshop
January 29-30, 2013
Waldorf Astoria Hotel, Orlando
A skill-building workshop for grantmakers at all levels of experience
Are you new to the grantmaking field and looking to get started on a solid footing with the right set of skills for your work? Or a more seasoned grantmaker looking for a refresher on the core skills and strategies that are relevant in today's environment? Whatever your level of experience in the field, you won't want to miss FPN's Skills & Strategies for Grantmakers (SSG) Workshop.

Using a highly interactive approach and the most reputable local and national resource materials available, the SSG Workshop will help you gain or reinforce the knowledge and skills you need to do your best work. Taught by a group of seasoned grantmakers from across Florida, the two-day workshop is a great opportunity to learn with experts and to share experiences with other professionals in the field.

Designed by experts in the philanthropy sector, the SSG Workshop is a comprehensive educational program that engages grantmakers in high-level discussions about the field of philanthropy. The SSG curriculum has been adapted from the Essential Skills & Strategies (ESS) for New Grantmakers curriculum, developed by the Council on Foundations and the Forum of Regional Associations of Grantmakers, to engage grantmakers at every level of experience.
   
"Great workshop! Life-changing. Thank you!"
