Like many of our members, Todd Thacker joined the International Foundation because of his need for education.  It was 1991 and he had just begun his role as a new trustee.  It didn’t take long in those early days for Todd to realize he had an urgent need for education. “Then and now,” said Todd, “the best way to get the education I need is through the International Foundation.”
