Federal Grant Financial Management Workshop
Federal Grant Financial Management Workshop


You are invited to attend the Federal Grant Financial Management Workshop on June 12-15, 2012, hosted by Roane State Community College.  The workshop will be conducted by Mr. Ed Donahue.  Mr. Donahue’s expertise includes financial management, policy, grant management, and training.  Mr. Donahue’s resume is attached and provides further details regarding his professional experience and credentials.

The workshop should provide beneficial training for your business office/accounting staff and grant writers/managers as well.  We expect this workshop to be informal in the sense that the participants can ask a lot of questions of the consultant but we expect we should also learn from each other. 

Some of the topics to be covered are provided below.  Please feel free to share any topics or specific areas that you would like to learn more about to benefit your business/grant department.  Send your topics to
