The First National Online CAP ®Study Group Starts January 2015
We have found that the time advisors and nonprofit professionals spend together sharing experiences, expertise and insights becomes the highlight of taking the CAP® courses in this setting. That’s why AiP is teaming up with the American College to offer the first National CAP® Online Study Group, to engage professionals from many sides of the planning table in conversation. The Study Group is
divided into three courses. Each course will meet virtually every other week for 5 sessions beginning January 2015. Upon completion of all three courses, participants can take the CAP® exam to earn their designation.
Learn more about the CAP® program and the online study group by listening to thispre-recorded webinarled by the online study group facilitator, Sally Alspaugh, CAP®.
To register, call Elaine Gulezian, The American College at 610-526-1479. Don't delay, the course is close to filling up.
CAP Study Groups:
"The CAP Study Group classes are outstanding and being a part of the group is one of the best things I have ever done professionally. Too bad each session only allows for two hours – just when we get started, it is over, with so much more ground to cover. The discussions are lively, and within two weeks the information from the reading and the sessions have added a whole new dimension to how I communicate – and listen – to our wealth holders. The caliber of participants and level of expertise is just top notch, and everyone in the class has an awful lot to contribute and offer. The range of the experience is extensive, as it is much larger in breadth and scope than what is covered by participation in other professional groups”. –Diane A.
