I am dashing off to the airport to catch a flight to Philadelphia, so I have only a moment for a quick post. But I wanted to point yor attention to this great piece on having difficult conversations.

This week is the IAFN Annual Assembly, so I will be in Atlanta through next weekend. Posting will be light, but please check in over at the Forensic Health site for updates from the conference.

The Chronicle of Philanthropy hosted an online discussion yesterday on using Facebook Causes to promote nonprofits. Sadly, I just heard about it this morning, so I couldn't attend. But it's archived on their site and available for viewing (it's transcripts of the session, not video). For those of you toying with this approach to fundraising, it's worth checking out.

Because so many of us are slogging through long hours and huge case loads, particularly in this economic climate, I thought this piece from Rosabeth Moss Kanter over at the Voices blog (Harvard Business Publishing) would be particularly relevant. In her post, she discusses the 3 characteristics that make someone an energizer.

We've talked about rehiring quality SANEs who've left the program as one effective recruitment tool in a previous post, but there's a great Conversation Starter this week that touches on the same topic. Keep in mind, it was written for the business world, but the principles are still applicable...

Its only 9:15 am and I have already fielded two questions this morning on SANE/SART funding, so I am going to take that as a sign from the blogging gods and get a post up on finding funders.
