"Coming from a career outside of academia, I had so much to learn about community college resource development when joining Victoria College in 2000. The best decision I ever made was to attend CRD’s Specialist Training Program. That experience and other CRD programming I have attended throughout the years have proven invaluable for me as a fundraiser and community college administrator. The members and leadership are always willing to share their knowledge, expertise and best practices. This has allowed Victoria College to be very successful in its resource development efforts.
And, I would be remiss if I didn’t say how much I value the friendships I have made through CRD!"
