If your club plans to apply for a COMMUNITY SERVICE or GLOBAL GRANT  for 2019-20, someone from your club must attend a GRANT MANAGEMENT SEMINAR (GMS) and it's especially important that the main contacts on a proposed grant are strongly encouraged to attend. To ensure enough materials, seating and food, registration is needed. DEADLINE is 2 days before each seminar, for details and to register click the blue text of the location.
