Abstract

Chapters and movement entities hopefully have lots of questions about the Funds Dissemination Committee. What is it all about? You want to know how to achieve eligibility, how to apply, what the restrictions are, and when the deadlines are. In addition, you want to know what makes for a good proposal. Come meet the FDC members; they are eager to share and discuss good practice, specifically, how to create SMART goals, how to plan for metrics and outcomes, how to write about your entity’s programs, and what their expectations are for organizational growth over time. You’ll also learn what resources are available to you as you fill out your proposal. Along with the FDC staff, they’ll be on hand to answer your questions!
