News for Grant Writers: Switching Over to the New NING Platform

Drew & Associates Organizing a Cruise to Alaska for Grant Writers/Non-Profit Executives

We are trying out a new idea: combining Dr. Drew's Lightning Fast Grant Writing with a cruise to Alaska. I'm not sure how this will work out in the end, but it would be fun to make this an annual event. I think a portion of the cruise - at least for the workshops - would be tax deductible for us. See, FYI: I've never tried this before so your honest critique would be greatly appreciated.
