This cute hedgehog takes a break from eating avocado to ask you:
* California nonprofits: participate in this important study! The California Association of Nonprofits and the U of San Diego are conducting a large study of the economic impact of California’s nonprofit sector. Please take the time to complete the survey of nonprofits here; it will be combined with economic and nonprofit data along with a survey of the public for a report in March of next year. Thank you!

* American Nonprofits call for nominations: As a Blue Avocado subscriber you have been given a membership in American Nonprofits, which is seeking nominees for its national board of directors. If you are interested in working to help nonprofits get fair access to credit and loans as well as the other goals of American Nonprofits, let us know and we’ll have more information sent to you. Don’t forget to include your contact information!
* Query re high-maintenance board members: Are you an executive with a high-maintenance board member? Are you a high-maintenance board member? What makes someone “high-maintenance” rather than “highly engaged”? Click here to send your thoughts on this topic for a future Blue Avocado article.
* What other nonprofit magazine brings you humor, hedgehogs, journalism, and useful stuff? Consider making a donation to Blue Avocado via American Nonprofits as a holiday gift. And give Blue Avocado to your friends simply by forwarding this issue and encouraging them to subscribe. Thanks! Jan Masaoka, Susan Sanow and the Blue Avocado team
