Dear NPN family member,
We all share a passion for professionalism, a calling to leadership, and giving back. We also share a wonderful history of cruising together. Through the National Professionals Network Enrichment Foundation (NPNEF) and continuing to cruise together, we will continue the legacy. All cruise proceeds after operating expenses will be dispersed to educational institution(s) and/or student entities.
The official NPNEF cruises will begin in 2020 with more information to be forthcoming. 
For this year, a “Taste of Cuba” cruise is being offered from September 25 – 30, 2019, embarking out of Ft. Lauderdale. The programming will include: 
  • Cuba’s Past and Present
