DOTHAN – Developing effective federal government proposals is the aim of a one-day conference at Troy University’s Dothan Campus.
Hosted by the University’s Small Business Development Center and Procurement Technical Assistance Program, the seminar is scheduled for 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. July 28 in the Thomas Harrison Room in Malone Hall.
Funding for the event is being provided by the Alabama Procurement Technical Assistance Program, and the $20 participant fee includes lunch, breaks and materials costs.
During the day, participants will receive two hours of instruction followed by six hours of scenario-based training. Presenting the session is nationally recognized business leader and consultant Jerry Ellison. Topics covered include:
“The scenario-based training provides participants an opportunity to experience the various steps and stages in developing a complete proposal,” said Judy Callin, a small business development consultant. “For purposes of the training, the background and qualifications of the fictitious company used will be relatively simplistic; however, all objectives in the proposal preparation process will be covered.”
Callin suggested participants bring a laptop computer, or prepare to partner with someone with a laptop.
