GrantChat, a program of SmartEGrants, is a weekly Twitter chat (Tuesdays at 12pm EST) led by Twitter handle @grant_chat and hosted Jo Miller, GPC, CSMS (@jm_grants) with the behind the scenes support of Michelle Loftis (@mlloftis) and Bethany Turner (@turner_bethany). Questions are posted at grantchat.org in advance of the chat.
The tagline of “#GrantChat: Where Grant Professionals Connect and Grow” summarizes the goal for GrantChat, to provide a Twitter community for thoughtful organized professional connection and development for grant professionals.
To follow (even if you don’t have a Twitter account) or participate in #grantchat twitter chat, you can use the live discussion app on the #grantchat website or by logging in with your Twitter account. When you use a tool like Tchat each tweet will automatically include the #grantchat hashtag. You can also login with your Twitter account or follow. Alternatives to participate in the live discussion is to use your Twitter application like Hootsuite or TweetDeck and create a stream to follow the #grantchat hashtag.
Each week we archive GrantChat so anyone can access the value of this professional development community.
If you are new to the idea of participating in a twitter chat, we recommend that you read the GrantChat “How To” guide.
