The National Association of Charitable Gift Planners (CGP) is excited to announce Chad Hymas  as the keynote speaker for CGP Conference in Las Vegas.  Chad Hymas inspires, motivates, and moves audiences, creating an experience that touches hearts for a lifetime. He is one of the youngest ever to receive the Council of Peers Award for Excellence (CPAE) and to be inducted into the prestigious National Speaker Hall of Fame.
