Get Jazzed About Grants Management

Attend the region's premier educational event for grants professionals to get answers to your questions about managing grants and to stay up-to-date on recent developments affecting grant-funded entities.  Southern Grants Forum 2018 will be held in New Orleans and will feature a dozen experts and more than two dozen informative yet entertaining sessions over three exciting days.  The Southern Grants Forum will offer information for all types of grant-funded organizations (from nonprofits and governments to hospitals and educational institutions) regardless of whether the organization is a direct grantee, subrecipient, or pass-through. Join us this July 16 to 18 as the Crescent City celebrates its Tricentennial to "Get Jazzed about Grants Management."


Southern Grants Forum 2018 will begin with a special half-day update and review of the Uniform Grants Guidance (also known as the OMB Super Circular) on July 16 and then continue for two additional, full days of general and breakout sessions.  You can mix or match breakout sessions from our Grants Management, Fiscal, Human Resources, Head Start, IT, and Governance tracks, to learn about the topics that matter to you.  More than two dozen sessions are planned, including:


  • The Uniform Grants Guidance at Five;
  • Indirect Costs: The Fundamentals;
  • Conquering the Uniform Cost Principles;
  • A Holistic Approach to Fraud;
  • Understanding Wage and Hour Law Requirements;
  • Recruiting and Retention Strategies;
  • Understanding Fee for Service Models;
  • Understanding Construction Contracts;
  • Head Start Update;
  • Conducting Legally Sound Background Checks;
  • GAAP Update for Nonprofits;
  • GASB Update 2018;
  • Indirect Costs: A Deeper Dive;
  • The New Nonprofit Accounting Rules; and,
  • Procurement Best Practices under the Uniform Grants Guidance.

In addition, Southern Grants Forum 2018 will feature a lively "Hot Topics" Panel that will let you ask our experts your questions about the Uniform Grants Guidance, grants management, accounting, legal requirements, governance, technology, human resources, and programmatic issues.
