“These are an excellent resource for everything I needed to get our non-profit board more active and successful towards our objectives, forming committees and recruiting new board members.  I like the direct information in a short, easy-to-understand format.  I had sent for other sources, but a book was too long, too detailed to read on every one of the subjects I purchased from you.  Look forward to sharing with the board your suggestions next week.”
