“Wow, isn’t this the most intellectually invigorating presidential election?? I am so inspired by all of the tremendous ideas the candidates have for making the world a better place. I love how my friends and family are engaged and respecting each other’s opinions as we all work together for the common good.”
Said no one this election season – ever!
Why this election is different than any other is a subject we could debate all day.

Congratulations and welcome to your nonprofit board.
You were selected to be a board member because you are possessed with gifts and talents like no other – and you can make a considerable difference in the impact that your nonprofit organization will make on your community.
You may be wondering about your role. Will you need to show up at board meetings regularly or once in awhile? Will you be expected to raise money? Will there be “homework”? What else will you be asked to do, and will you have the time to do it?
I’m looking over my New Year’s Resolutions list and it looks remarkably like the same list I made last year. And the year before that. And the year before that!

In every case, my repeat resolutions are ones I have tried to conquer alone.
This week, we have all remembered Nelson Mandela by sharing his inspirational quotes with each other through social media. Many of these quotes are short and simple, but contain powerful truths. He spoke of the wonderful things he believed we could achieve – freedom, equality, justice, prosperity – and how he believed we could achieve it – cooperation, collaboration, self development, love.
