KCOBANA’s View From The Top (VFTT) Program aims to facilitate dialogue amongst all KCOBs that are concerned about Nigeria issues. It provides old boys in North America with an opportunity to meet & exchange ideas with persons who lead &/or are eminent in their areas of expertise or interest. These gatherings would typically occur when such leaders are visiting an area that interested KCOBs reside or work in. At such times, meetings can be arranged for the benefit of all.
