You should be looking for CHAMPIONS, not just ‘BOARD MEMBERS’!
‘STUFF’ gets done by CHAMPIONS… by people who believe in your Mission, Message, Vision.
CHAMPIONS are involved with you because of your IMPACT! (They are NOT there because they want to be ‘fundraisers’.)
Success with your Board is more about RELATIONSHIPS with INDIVIDUAL MEMBERS… not the Board as a whole!
Stay focused on these CHAMPIONS! They will lead you to the proverbial ‘Promised Land’.
*For us, it’s really simple:
I say ‘Only one (wo)man can do anything’.”
“All good ideas start with one (wo)man.”
“The creative, caring, believing person sends out waves of influence.”
“(S)He affects others who in turn affect others.”
