The time is now to register for the National Grants Management Association’s annual training conference on May 1-4. This year, the event is moving from its traditional location in the D.C. area to Hershey, Pa. How tempting is that for drawing an audience?

Among the sessions offered are:
• What is Proper Source Documentation?
• No Need to Run for the Hills When the Monitor/Auditor Comes
• How to Develop and Implement a Best Practice Monitoring Program
• Enhancing Grant Accountability Through Innovative Reporting Techniques
• The New Age of Accountability: Linking Activities to Outcomes and Cost
• The New Age of Accountability: Activity-Based Budgets — Why and How
• Strategies for Successful Grant Monitoring
• Grants Management in the Electronic Age: An Overview and Discussion of Kentucky’s Electronic Grants Management System

Plenary sessions will feature updates from the Office of Management and Budget and the Government Accountability Office, as well as a discussion of the Open Government Directive, public policy and the Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act. Running concurrently with this year’s conference will be the NGMA’s Certified Grants Management Specialist training program. Conference attendees also are invited to special events in the Hershey area on May 1.

Call 703-648-9023 or register for the conference online here.
