Table Hotspot: Timelines

Attendees at the 2016 AIGM Grantmaking in Australia Conference participated in a lively series of Table Hotspot sessions.

Each session saw delegates gather with fellow funders to discuss and reflect on one of 10 grantmaking topics.

The Hotspots allowed like-minded funders to tackle a grantmaking issue, discuss how they've faced it and share techniques to address it.

While acknowledging that timelines were an issue - and something they actively sought to improve - grantmakers agreed there were challenges in doing so.

Lack of communication can also exacerbate timeline-related problems, both within grantmaking bodies and also between grantmakers and grantseekers.
