Register to Attend an INAPEF Regional Meeting

INAPEF's regional meetings are a great way to learn and network with education foundation colleagues. Whether you're a staff member or board member, the regional meetings will provide information you can take back to your foundation to help it raise more money and improve its operations. Register by emailing inapef@inapef.org with the name(s) of the attendees and meeting you are registering for. Money for the lunch ($10 per person) will be collected at each of the meeting sites. Registration deadline is April 3.

North Regional Meeting
April 13, 11:00am to 1:00pm EDT in Mishawaka
More Than a Miracle
Education was a key factor in the greatest sports moment in United States history. In February 1980, Coach Herb Brooks and 20 young men stunned the dynasty Soviet hockey team and won gold in Lake Placid. They galvanized our hurting nation along the way. All 20 players were college educated. Coach Brooks had a degree in psychology with a minor in economics. The players understood the importance of a strong work ethic, love for one another, and pride in their country. Charlie Adams is on a mission to share their entire story. This program will touch all of your emotions, as he shares their remarkable journey toward Olympic gold.
