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. Bergner, Director of Development, Kravis Center for the Performing Arts, West Palm Beach, FL
