About the Speakers
Jeremy Smith, Communications Director at GrantStation
After ten years in radio and six years as an announcer and Program Director at a local NPR Station, Jeremy began a business that specialized in "brining tech support to you." He was initiated into the world of GrantStation through that endeavor and joined the team in July of 2008.
Connecting a nonprofit with funding has become a real point of enjoyment for him as he updates and develops new looks and features for the website. His goal is to make the process of finding funding the easiest part of the grant process. Hearing about the organizations that have not only received funding but found the information through GrantStation-or one of the Insider newsletters-is an excellent indicator of the success. He also hosts a show called General Protection Fault which provides listeners with " Computer Talk That You Can Use" every Wednesday at 6:30pm KSUA 91.5 FM.
