Thanksgiving 2015

Happy Thanksgiving Greeting, Fall Leaves Background and text Happy Thanksgiving

On this Thanksgiving, I have much to be thankful for, including on a professional level, these 10 opportunities:

  1. To work with and be around truly amazing co-workers who inspire me and fill my life with positivity (thank you Erin and Michele!).
  2. To serve and work with charities, foundations, and their leaders in making this a better world for more people.
  3. To continually learn from our clients, our colleagues, and experts in diverse areas.
  4. To share our knowledge through the Nonprofit Law Blog, The Nonprofit Quarterly, Nonprofit Radio, and social media (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn).
  5. To present information to strengthen nonprofits at conferences and through webinars for organizations including BoardSource, Independent Sector, CalNonprofits, and the American Law Institute.
  6. To bring together national, state, and local organizations to advocate on public policy issues.
  7. To collaborate and present with highly respected colleagues from other firms and organizations.
  8. To operate with a double-bottom line where impact is our priority.
  9. To receive, for our work, kind and generous words of appreciation from clients, colleagues, friends, nonprofit leaders, the media, and the general public.
  10. To work from our great new office at WeWork – Transbay.

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.
