What participants said:

 Attending NCFP's Trustee Education Institute has given me more confidence in my role as a new board member of our foundation. I feel I have the proper information and invigoration now to go forward as a efficient and constructive member of the board. Thank you so much!

 Excellent speakers rotate through a well designed agenda. This is a comprehensive program, touching on most everything on trustees' minds. The icing on the cake is the open forum inviting discussion of topics that had not been addressed.
