“Funders Corner” in the Networking Café!
Drop by the Networking Café during the annual meeting to visit with program officers from CLIR, IMLS, NEH, and NHPRC.  Share ideas about projects and get some details on relevant funding programs.  If a representative isn’t there when you come by, grab some literature and leave a note requesting a follow up communication.  See how you can turn your inspirations into activities!
