Feedback from participants:
What did you find most valuable about this workshop?
~ Being able to spend time with my Board Chair; current and incoming was incredibly valuable. Hearing the same information together is essential!
~ Clarity on the roles of the heads and the board
~ Spending time with fellow Heads and Board Chairs.
~ Each session was extremely informative and helpful. The camaraderie amongst FCIS colleagues is one of the many aspects of in-person events that I value.
