Gives You The Tools You Need to Go Forward

These podcasts are a very generous offering that will help any new Board Member who is struggling to find the vocabulary and action items to help their chosen good works thrive. Even though I don't live in Arizona I found all the discussions to be applicable to non-profit worlds anywhere. Next time you're driving around or cooking and need some background convo cue it up. It's a good hang.
