I wish the presenter had shared that you had to register with the myCPE site prior to logging into the event. I talked to at least two other participants who did not know and each of us had issues creating an account in my CPE.

Very informative. Before attending this webinar, I thought I had a fairly good understanding of endowment funds. I see now that they are much more nuanced than I had previously imagined.
