What our participants have to say about MIE Board of Director Training!

"THANK YOU so very much for coming to Rockford this past weekend to facilitate our Board Retreat!  I appreciate your time and effort in putting together such a relevant program for us, and the engaging way of your presentations.  I especially liked your sharing of strategies that have worked at other programs. I feel energized after our retreat, much as I did after the MIE Fundraising Conference back in July.  You are a great facilitator and encourager and I enjoyed our time together." -David B. Collins, Esq. of Quinn, Johnston, Henderson, Pretorius & Cerulo Law Firm

"I like best the various ideas that were brainstormed and which were provided to us as "Next Steps." Great job! That list is comprehensive and very valuable; even if only half the ideas materialize, it would still significantly enhance our effectiveness." - Board Member of Legal Services Alabama
