FFI On Friday | December 08, 2017

Prepared Exclusively for FFI Members

Thanks to the 2017 Global Education Network (GEN) Faculty

2017 has been a banner year for the GEN program. By the end of the fourth quarter, we will have graduated nearly 100 people with either CFBA or CFWA certificates – and some with both.

We will have added 22 people to the growing advanced certificate roster and 12 new Fellows were welcomed in Chicago.

None of this would have been possible – let alone interesting – without the excellent work of the dedicated faculty, many of whom were new this year and some of whom will be rotating off, but who will be available for the occasional webinar or as mentors. Please join us in thanking this outstanding group.
