¶ 3 Leave a comment on paragraph 3 0 NCFR has been and will continue to be significant to the professional growth of its members and to myriad other individuals and organizations interested in and concerned with people and families. Just as the frailty of the dollar impacts on the economy of individual families and affects every fiber of their relations with each other and their world, so too is this a crucial period in the life of the NCFR and its future. As families who face reality muster their resources to face the issue realistically, so too, I call upon all of you to be of help in the month ahead to balance NCFR’s fiscal future.
