“As the principal of the the nominating committee for the Book Festival  I found this year’s Nantucket Nonprofit Leadership conference incredibly helpful and inspiring. We are now seeking new candidates and officers for the committee and found myself quoting one of the presenters, Ms. Fridman. She said “think about where your organization WANTS TO GO when you are looking for new board members”.  This quote and other lessons learned from the conference started a productive conversation at our last meeting.”
