I am a huge fan of “lists” whether it be a checklist of things to complete in a process or a list of favorite items or recommendations or simply a list of things I should consider when taking on a new topic. Once I have had the chance to review the list, then I can decide if I want to dive deeper into the subject matter or not. Complied here are a list of “Things and Executive Director should Know” on a variety of topics. This is not a top ten list as that implies priority. I feel that the priority is dependent on your situation or maybe even your personal preference. Instead this is just a list of things to consider or know. The lists are by no means a complete listing of everything to know or consider. The lists are intended to get you started on the topic and hopefully will lead you to a deeper understand of the topic or the process.
