AMCD ETHNIC VICE PRESIDENTS & STRATEGIC PLANNING
An AMCD Webinar
President Kimberly Frazier tasked the AMCD Ethnic Vice Presidents to produce white papers to outline pressing issues for the communities they represent and serve. While many of these white papers have been shared with the membership, this webinar is designed to discuss and operationalize those goals. Moreover, the Regional Representative will submit questions that are unique to members in their region. The webinar is open access. CEUs are offered for active AMCD Members.
