Darn Good!

I had just finished my last presentation at a Board Retreat. It was a combined meeting of the System and the Foundation Boards of Palmetto Health in Columbia, South Carolina.

I was racing against time, making a mad dash to the airport. On my way out of the auditorium, I stopped for a moment.

I saw a stack of papers on a table. I grabbed one. I tucked it in my briefcase and kept running for my taxi. You’ve done the same sort of thing I suspect.

On the plane, I opened my briefcase and took out the sheet. I started reading.

I thought, hey— this looks darn good. Next, I thought . . . this looks familiar. Then I looked at the bottom of the page. It was taken from my book, The Fundraising Habits of Supremely Successful Boards.

And it is . . . well, it is darn good !

There are 25 items (in bullet-like form) someone abstracted from my book. It was meant to give to the Board members who attended my session.

Tell your Board members to look at the list and give themselves a grade.
