    Default Seminar Location Thread

    We did this last year and no one seemed to have an issue with it. More importantly, I'm doing this as the FH.Com Senior Contributing Editor not as a grant guy, so this thread is open to any and all links for workshop schedule links that anyone knows of for any company/person teaching. Kurt and I don't own these forums (nor have we ever thought that) so no one should put anything in here other than a list of locations. Any education is better than none so put them all down whether they cost anything or not.

    www.firegraphics.org/schedule.htm
    www.chiefsupply.com/grants/
    http://foundationcenter.org/events/
    http://www.grantwritingbootcamp.us/
    http://www.grantwritingusa.com/events.html

    I tried to link to the schedule pages so it's easy to check for updates. If anyone finds more schedules then post them up.

    Happy granting - Brian

    Kurt will be coming to Valley Center Kansas on December 5th and 6th for a grant seminar for all public safety. I hosted him last March and already one of the attendees has received an award for 2008. This department had not received an award from AFG. If you have received a DJ and am thinking of attending a grant class, sign up. These classes help. I have been writing grants for 13 years and I learn something new everytime I attend one. If you sign up by November 5th the cost is $299.00 It is worth the cost. Valley Center Kansas is just north of Wichita.

    Alum Bank, PA will need to be added to this list. We will also be hosting Kurt Bradley once again December 13, 14. He is a sucker for these winter seminars. I scheduled him on these dates hoping the snow will stick around for Christmas!!! We are located in the south central part of PA. If anyone has any interests, please drop me an email or a private message.

    Not a good sign.....no blizzard to the Northeast this time, but you brought the cold front....50's at night.....60's during the day. Well, it's better than 90 with high humidity.

    I think we're looking at having two, possibly Pierre and Sioux Falls to cover the most ground. It's in the same week I'll be hitting MN, IA, and NE so too bad I don't get frequent flier miles for driving the rental all over too.

    News Flash for those of you in New England who were asking about it. I just had the Londonderry FD in NH sign up to bring me in to deliver a two day seminar there on October 27th -28th. Rather quick notice for this one but it will be my only seminar for NE this year beisdes the one in Rochester NY. I'll post it to my website later today.

    Update: Could not get the dates for the venue that they wanted so new dates are being proposed so stay tuned. They are making up their minds and we will post it soon.

    Looks like they want a snow storm. If it does happen, I believe Kurt is under obligation to swing by my house and shovel out the driveway and clean up the cars (4 cars & 1 school bus).

    They don't call me "Iceman" for no reason at all onebugle. That driveway shoveling is another story all together though.

    Count me in for the Londonderry NH seminar. Finally a seminar that wasn't more than 6 hours away. We can make the trip to NH in about 4 hours. :-}
