2017 PAGE 18 ILPA’s education programs enjoyed record attendance in 2017 at both the ILPA Institute courses and on our virtual webcasts. Our philosophy of delivering an educational platform by LPs for LPs continued to resonate strongly with members as we added several additional opportunities to participate in our most popular offerings during the year.While the existence of an ILPA Institute waiting list is a testament to the value of our program, we seek first and foremost to meet demand and ensure that ILPA members are able to access the classes they need when and where they need them.We were pleased to accommodate our wait list in 2017. At ILPA, we believe that limited partners can accelerate their effectiveness and success when they have access to education that is practical, interactive and reflective of the trusted work that they do. Our activities in 2017 demonstrated our goal to support these endeavors and empower our members. Specifically: • We successfully ran 12 Institute courses in Chicago, London and San Francisco, adding additional courses to meet demand.These included Levels I and II as well as our Specialist Series. • Our webcasts and virtual town halls numbered 13 in 2017, with nearly 2,000 members logging on during the year to learn and share information on topics such as USTax Reform Implications, Co-Investment Strategies, GP Stake Sales, Navigating LPACs, Due Diligence Best Practices, ILPA’s Lines of Credit Guidance and more. • The Education team developed 12 workshops that were held at ILPA major events including the European Forum and Members’ Conference. These workshops were led by experts in the PE industry and all presentation materials and summaries are available for members to download from the ILPA website. The team also spearheaded the exclusive content for our first annual CIO Symposium, which we will hold again in 2018. • The Education Committee focused its annual offsite on member feedback and the effectiveness of existing programs providing strategic input into future areas for potential education content rele- vant to the membership. In 2018, we intend to explore several opportunities to expand our educational delivery model by adding additional, original content and reaching more limited partners in more places. Our participants are proceeding through the Institute at a far quicker pace than ever before.As the only organization in the world dedicated solely to educating LPs, we recognize that there exists a sub- stantial need in the market, which we intend to meet with the help and vision of our outstanding Education staff, Committee and Board.
