Late in 2008, I wrote a professional development grant to attend another class through the Fundraising School.
Today, I got the letter that I was approved and get to take the class in March.
It's a little strange that this grant, for once, is largely for me. Of course, the whole point of me doing this is to be better at my job and therefore help the organization. But, instead of writing about the need for more college grads, I wrote about how I needed to know what I was doing!
We've been asked here to compile a new list of goals for our jobs here at Starfish and I've spent quite a while today hashing out a set of things that I think can be accomplished in the next year but that will push the envelope somewhat.
But, with everything on the list, I'd best keep working.
