Calling All Past and Present Community Practitioner Program Participants!

We’re gathering stories of those who participated in the program over the years to better understand the impact it has had on individuals and their communities.

If you were a ‘CPP’er’ between 1989 and 2019, and would like to share with the NCMS community what this program means to you, please contact Elaine Ellis, NCMS VP for Communications and Marketing or call 919-833-3836, x112.
