Winner and Undisputed ChampionSometimes non-profit boards struggle with balancing the time it takes to serve versus other activities they enjoy--especially if they have difficulty identifying progress. The following blurb from Jerold Panas is a great description of the board at CCCF.
"You are among a chosen few. You are a trustee of an organization providing wondrous service. Because of you, lives are being changed and saved. You raise the funds to provide the scholarships, heal the sick, feed the hungry, and order the world. It's because of you. You are making it happen. The problems never looked more difficult and more complex. The opportunities never looked as exciting and bright. These two statements should stir the heart and spirit of every trustee and challenge board members to be their very best. You are charged to dream the unthinkable. Attempt the impossible. It is the magic of the idea that will lead your organization to unconquerable success. You will feel the rapture of being alive. You will forever be, to use Ernest Hemingway's salute: "the winner and undisputed champion." Jerold Panas
