July has been an eventful month for us at NEO. Emily accepted an invitation to speak at the 2011 BoardSource Leadership Forum in Atlanta and Net Impact Annual Conference in Portland (I'll tag along for that one). For those in the Bay Area, you can catch Emily at The Foundation Center in August and at CompassPoint's Nonprofit Day in September. With all that attention, it became appropriate to change Emily's twitter name @nonprofitlawyer to reflect her real name @emilychan. Only 25 years of age, she has a fresh perspective and is definitely one to watch!
Here are some of my favorite posts of the week in the areas of nonprofit organizations, corporate governance, philanthropy, and social enterprises:
