I became a Trustee in May 2012, and because of Opal putting together these Summits, I can surely say that when I'm at the board meetings I can ask questions that I gathered from the conferences that I attented. I can ask the appropiate questions regarding our penison. Continual education has been a great benefit in my performing my due diligence responablity as a trustee. Thanks Opal for allowing me to take part in these wonderful summits.Phyllis Carr
