The top notch courses included in NACD U provide us with access to well-designed training materials that can be completed as employees’ schedules allow, and at a fraction of the cost of less-targeted traditional training courses. Thank you, everyone at NACD, for continuing to provide more value to the members.” - Tommy Turriff, President, TLC Ingredients, Inc.
