About the Author
He is a past recipient of RIT's highest award for outstanding teaching and one of a very select group awarded the Presidential Medallion, given to those making exceptionally significant contributions to the univserity. In 2012, a former student anonymously contributed $3 million to endow an RIT Chair in Critical Thinking in his name, an honor Dr. Fram describes as "a professor's dream come true!"
Over his distinguished career he has served on 12 nonprofit boards overseeing diverse community, national and professional organizations, and also has served on five for-profit boards. His particular passion is helping nonprofit boards perform at high levels as more is expected of these boards today than most people realize. He credits his frequent collaborator, writer/editor Vicki Brown, for exceptional creativity in turning the lessons he's leaned into this highly valuable guidebook.
Eugene Fram lives in Los Altos, California. Vicki Brown lives in Rochester, New York.
