Grant Administration Round Table Discussion Group
This group consists of RCM Managers, Business Managers, and other clerical staff that provide financial oversight and administrative support for grants assigned to their unit. They meet for one hour each month to ask questions, share experiences, and build a knowledgeable community of support. If you would like to be invited to these meetings, please contact Sponsored Programs. Meetings typically include a brief informal presentation followed by open discussion.
