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
An in-person GMS session was presented at the 2018 District Conference in Thunder Bay.
This was the last of the in-person seminars scheduled for the 2018-19 Rotary Year.    
NEW For 2019-2020
Going Forward, it is intended that all seminars be presented in an on-line format.  A few updates and modifications need to be made to the current videos and quizzes, and will be completed well in advance of the qualification required for the 2019-2020 Rotary grant application process. 
The committee will continue to monitor this to assure that the information presented is sufficiently helpful to the clubs in the grant process and for the overall project completion and reporting.  It is understood that not all details can be adequately transferred to members via this media, and that MENTORS will continue to be a most valuable and necessary resource for each club participating in a Grant Project. 



Grant Management Seminars: 

The Grant Management Seminar (GMS) course is a video based 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 seminar has been prepared be members of the District 5580 Grant Sub-Committee, with assistance from the District Training Team.  It will be updated annually, or as needed to include current RI and District information.
If your club wishes to participate in the District Grants Program for the 2018-2019 Rotary Year, completing the Grant Management Course on-line course  is required. It is suggested that more than 1 member from each club complete the training (one being the President Elect), if possible.  The on-line course can be completed at your own pace during one or multiple visits to the course website. There is no fee to participate.
Once completed, please email the Grants SubCommitteee Chair to indicate that you have successfully finished.   They will confirm that all modules have been viewed and each of the quizzes were answered correctly.  They can then acknowledge that this requirement for qualification of your club for participation in the grant process is complete for the designated rotary year.  Remember that this is an annual requirement and must be done each Rotary year. 
Please note that there are additional club qualification requirements - the club must also submit a properly signed MOU and MOU addendum to the district, and all reporting requirements for previous grants must be in compliance.
