Meet the Board …

The National Family Preservation Network is truly “national”.  In fact, NFPN’s assessment tools, training packages and services are used by over 1,000 agencies nationwide and in 20 other countries.  The folks who serve NFPN, whether as contractors or board members, are spread across the United States.  For this reason, conference calls and Zoom meetings are the norm for us here.  Modern technology is great, but sometimes it’s nice, and important, to get together face-to-face.  So, once a year the board of directors pick a location and come together to have an in-person meeting, or “board retreat” if you will.

We recently had our annual board meeting near Atlanta, Georgia.  It was a great time to socialize and strategize!  We brainstormed lots of ideas to implement in the near, mid and somewhat distant future.  My head was spinning after the meeting, but I was also very excited to organize and plan NFPN’s future endeavors.  I look forward to revealing these plans and reporting on our progress in the months and years to come.  For now, I want to take this opportunity to introduce you to our amazing board of directors:
