2013 Leadership Council

The work of CRD is divided into three categories: Programming, Marketing and Membership, and Development. Each of these areas is led by volunteer CRD member Directors . Committees fall into the three categories and are chaired and populated by CRD members. CRD national office staff support the work of the committees.

"What impresses me most about this organization is that we truly are a community of leaders!  I am thankful that so many of you are eagerly embracing the idea that you can lead from wherever you are."
-- Kim Sturgeon, CRD Immediate Past President

"Being a new Executive Director of a Community College Foundation I have found the resources available to me through CRD to be invaluable. 

The conferences I have attended and the interaction with my colleagues from across the country have immensely accelerated my learning curve.

Thank you CRD for the role that you play in helping me positively affect the students of GRCC!"
