    THE FOUR C's: "THEE" REMEDY FOR BB (BOARD BLAHS)
    by Ronald J. Meshanko, President, ERC

    You probably have seen the symptoms of board anemia -- low attendance and minimal participation at board meetings; lack of energy to work on committees in between board meetings; unreturned phone calls and unanswered appeal letters -- tell-tale signs that a nonprofit has the BB's or the Board Blahs! You know the disease has turned deadly when you can't get a quorum at a board meeting. The remedy is simple - apply each of the Four C's to your board each week. Complete recovery requires continual application for a period of approximately six to nine months. Severe cases may require a stronger dose and the assistance of a specialist (board development consultant).
