REI is the proud creator and host of two breakfast forum series in partnership with some of the most prominent universities in the United States. These events gather professionals from Government, academia, and the corporate realm to establish a community with which to discuss important topics, learn about new innovations, and share accomplishments and lessons learned. Our forum communities encourage mutual improvement and success among all who participate.
The Grants Management Breakfast (GMB) Forum is held in partnership with the George Washington University Trachtenberg School of Public Policy and Public Administration. The GMB Forum brings together professionals from academia, government and industry to discuss challenges, strategies and keys to success in grants management. The Forum is intended particularly to strengthen the community of grant-makers. At each Forum, a government speaker or panel describes their grants management practices, results, and lessons-learned. Audience members engage the speaker, and each other, gathering ideas for ways to address current challenges within their agency, and forming networks to help them solve problems in the future as well. Together, we support one another and share critical lessons learned from authentic experiences.
There is no charge to attend GMB Forum events.
