Past Speeches

Keynote Speaker- Grant Professionals Association (GPA) Western PA Chapter

  • September 29, 2016
For almost three years, the State of Illinois did not pass a budget leaving many nonprofits without state government revenue streams. Unfortunately, this is a trend nonprofits across the country are experiencing.
Pennsylvania Nonprofit leaders invited Gayle to discuss this trend and identify strategies for success in this new reality.
Gayle Nelson provided a keynote for our annual symposium focused on “Building Budget Resilience: Grant & Development Strategies for Financial Survival” sponsored by the Grant Professionals Association-Western PA Chapter in September 2016. Gayle prepared and delivered an exceptionally well-researched presentation on the impact of Pennsylvania’s long-standing legislative stalemates, and offered thought-provoking nonprofit development strategies for these politically challenging times. 
Katherine F.H. Heart, GPC, M.Ed., Founding President, GPA-WPA Chapter
As a Pennsylvania attorney, working mostly with nonprofit, exempt organizations, I benefited greatly from the expertise and insight provided by Gayle Nelson.  Gayle’s experience in leading nonprofits through tough economic times, and in planning for advocacy and alternative strategies provided for an insightful, practical and extremely helpful tutorial at the Grants Professional Association-Western Pennsylvania Chapter Symposium in 2016.  I was honored to share the agenda with Gayle at this symposium and more than one year later, still hear from clients who enjoyed her useful and information-filled presentation.
