"Preparing for and obtaining the CGMS really put me through my paces! I believe it's made me a stronger internal resource for our team at work. I'm able to communicate effectively regarding the rules governing our federal awards, and research any questions my supervisor and co-workers have."

“During previous NGMA conferences, grant professionals spoke highly about the opportunity, which inspired me to grow in my profession and obtain the certification when the new exam became available…. It is my hope that having knowledge of the federal regulations will allow me to be a better resource for the grants department and the district as a whole.” (Pasadena ISD’s Stewart earns prestigious grant certification)
