Tweets of the Week – September 23, 2011

You know conference season is in full swing!  Clinton Global Initiative, BoardSource Leadership Forum, Social Good Summit, CompassPoint Nonprofit Day, Council on Foundations Fall Conference for Community Foundations were among the many events competing for our attendance and attention.  Impressively, Emily managed to present at two of these events and attend part of a third.  The past week, I've also had the honor of presenting to my peers at the State Bar of California Annual Conference and attending the Classy Awards and OneVietnam Gala.
