Our Executive Director, Karla, chooses a word that helps set an intention in both the personal and professional sides of life. Her word this year is OPPORTUNITY. From reading Managing Your Nonprofit for Resilience by Ted Bilich, she was pulled towards the idea of risk. "Risk is neither good nor bad. Risk is simply the acknowledgement that none of us can see into the future," (pg. 18). Opportunity is a way to express positive risk- taking intentional, smart risks.
As an organization, we want to take the idea of chosing a word of the year to guide our goals with intention.
FHBB has chosen BUILD as the word for 2024 to help connect some of this years goals.
