Friday and Saturday, January 13-14, 2017: What Can I Do?
“WHAT CAN I DO?”
Grammy Award winning gospel group, The Blind Boys of Alabama and their
producer Chris Goldsmith. It originally appeared on their 2014 album “Talkin’
Christmas” with Taj Mahal singing along. The song implores people to
become more involved in helping a friend, or a group, or a community, in
any way they can.
Governing well is one of the most profound ways to help
And when it’s exceptional, it has the biggest reach of all.
The Blind Boys and their co-writers want to be part of a movement that
catalyzes more people. To this end, they gift us this anthem to use in our
work here and across the country.
Join us January 12th, 13th and 14th, 2017, to find out how we can
grow exceptional boards, engage our communities and use “What Can I Do?” to
support our work.
On January 12th, Liz Shear, USD Nonprofit Symposium Director will
facilitate the third annual Kaleidoscope Tour to learn from 2 Kaleidoscope
Award winners and get a bird’s eye view of what makes exceptional boards
On January 13th, we feature how to grow exceptional boards:
