Houston Chapter

Thursday, January 10  9 am - 11 am  Houston Community College


Plan to Attend the January Houston Chapter Meeting!

We encourage all Houston members and members in the surrounding area to JOIN US for an opportunity to network with other grant professionals in the area.

While chapter meetings are a member-only benefit, non-members are able to experience one complimentary meeting. If you know someone who has not attended an NGMA chapter meeting and would benefit from the topics we discuss, feel free to invite that colleague to this meeting.
