I sat down with board expert Carol Weisman at the Association of Fundraising Professionals National Conference in March. In the interview she discusses how she thinks boards need to progress in the future. Plus, listen to how she was able to turn a near donor mishap into a donor succes story.

“Every board meeting
is like a cheerleading session“
“The Executive Director and the Board Chair have got to have go-go energy and be like spark plugs.”
