Three Grant Writers Attend National Conference

Robin Hertlein, Amanda Hertlein-Martin, and Michael Hertlein attended the GPA Annual conference held in Washington D.C. earlier this month. It was a wonderful time of connecting with other nonprofit professionals and sharpening our skills. Now that it is over, everyone has returned home to computers and to-do lists. The real work of writing grants must continue. Hertlein Grant Writing would like to thank everyone who attended the conference as well as everyone who was part of making the conference happen.
