"The One-Stop-Board-Retreat hosted by the Philanthropy & Nonprofit Leadership Center at Rollins College is not only a great value, but is perhaps one of the best retreats I have ever attended. Our executive team attended and found the session not only informative, but it also helped the group to get to know one another. We left the session energized and focused on sharing the messages from the retreat. I recommend this session to any organization that is looking to engage its board more effectively."
- Matthew M. Hodge, PhD, Vice President for Institutional Advancement Seminole Community College
