Program Officers can get stressed over the piles of grants to be reviewed, reports to compile and the late-night hours to get the job completed on time. The sacrifices that are sometimes made can mean you don’t get to know others from the funding community who face the same challenges.
Get to know your colleagues at GOSW’s first Program Officers networking event on Wednesday, January 16, 2020 from 4:30-6:30 pm. We will get together at 221 NW Second Avenue, Third Floor. Come relax, share ideas and meet Program Officers from other foundations to create a support network for you. This is a casual “happy hour” style of event to meet other Program Officers and those who play a role as a program officer in our member foundations.
We will provide wine, beer and soft drinks along with some snacks so you can get to know your colleagues. This event is free and open to current GOSW member organizations. We do need you to register for this event at GOSW.org on or before Monday, January 14. We also would like you to share your “worst, best and weirdest” tale of grant reviewing and/or your job. These will be distributed (without attribution) so you can compare notes, laugh (hopefully) and learn that you are not alone.
For answers, contact us at (503) 226-6340 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to seeing you there!
