Two New Educational Opportunities from the Noble Academy

The Shriners International Education Foundation (S.I.E.F.) Noble Academy is pleased to announce two new membership and marketing educational opportunities for Nobles.

We understand that everyone learns differently and know that many nobles have busy schedules, so we've designed a four-part Virtual Event Series and an In-person Conference. If you would like to take your learning to the next level, attend both the virtual events and conference to earn your Masters Class Certificate!

Our courses, led by top presenters in their fields, will lead to overall improvement in marketing and communications and membership recruitment and retention. We hope you'll join us!
