New On-Line Learning Option
An on-line video seminar is now available, to club members who have previously attended an in-person Grant Management Seminar within the last 2 years.  This is a slightly condensed (refresher/update) session, and successfully completing this will count toward your club's qualification requirements, for those who have previously attended a GMS in the past 2 years.  Follow these instructions to complete the On-Line Learning Option: GMS ON-LINE INSTRUCTIONS
The last opportunity for a face-to-face GMS session to qualify for 2018-19 will be on April 26, 2018 at the District Conference in Thunder Bay.


Grant Management Seminars: 

Nov 18, 2017 in US and Nov 25, 2017 in Canada

(to qualify for 2017-18 or 2018-19 Grants)

The Grant Management Seminar (GMS) is an interactive educational presentation geared toward helping clubs and members be successful in applying for, conducting, and reporting on a grant supported local community or international projects.   The seminars are typically facilitated be members of the District 5580 Grant SubCommittee, or with assistance from club members that have significant experience in working with the Grant process.
If your club wishes to participate in the District Grants Program for the 2018-2019 Rotary Year, attendance is required at a GMS. We suggest that 2 people from each club attend (one being the President Elect), if possible. Each GMS will be approx. 2.5-3 hours. There is no fee to attend, and each session will include all materials and snacks/beverages. Following are the dates and locations for each session:
