Marketing vs. Development – FIGHT!

In this episode, we find out how to determine the appropriate size of a board of directors, why “advisory board” makes both Andy and Stacey grumpy, and how to create a cohesive marketing/fundraising team. And Stacey gives some really good advice about why you shouldn’t change your nonprofit’s name to include the word “foundation.” We also give a young nonprofit executive some career advice and salary negotiation tips!
