January 2018: A Note From Greg

Vision without action is merely a dream.

Action without vision just passes the time.

Vision with action can change the world.

–Joel Barker

It is that time of year again, friends. The time when so many conversations include inquiries as to your new year’s resolutions. I invite you to view resolutions as I do — as a vision coupled with action. It can’t just be one or the other, because both are necessary to change the world. As nonprofit and community leaders, what each of you do is change the world each day through your vision in action.

Because it’s sometimes difficult on this journey to step back, see the big picture, and plan, CNPE is bringing several exciting opportunities your way to help you marry your organizational vision with action.

We’re here for you every step of the way.
