GPA South Florida:
This chapter was founded as the GPA Broward Chapter on May 21, 2004 with 10 members. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of the charter members and officers, the chapter continued to grow. On June 27, 2013, the chapter voted to change its name and geographic service area as a result of a merger with the GPA Miami-Dade Chapter. The application for Chapter Charter reflecting the new name, GPA South Florida, was signed by the members on September 26, 2013. With more than 75 members, GPA South Florida now represents grant professionals from the following counties: Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, Collier, Lee, and Monroe.

We meet the 4th Thursday of the month, except December. Our meetings feature professional development and networking. As the South Florida Chapter, we draw our membership from both Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, Collier, Lee, and Monroe counties.
We are affiliated with the Grant Professional Association, originally founded as the American Association of Grant Professionals in 1994.
We host annual full day workshops or a regional conference that bring nationally recognized leaders in grantsmanship to South Florida.
GPA is the leading authority and resource for the practice of all grantsmanship in all sectors of the field.
As a professional organization, GPA:
