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.
If you would like to see a copy of the 25 items, click here.
Tell your Board members to look at the list and give themselves a grade.
