Membership in NCNG provides your foundation's staff and board with ongoing opportunities for professional development, issue learning, and networking.
As one foundation trustee said of a recent NCNG event, "That workshop you did really helped me. We've tackled some of the issues you brought up and tried to start the conversation at our last meeting."
