On Wednesday, December 19th I was lucky enough to be on a phone call with Farm Aid's board of directors. Yes, that's right. I was speaking to Willie Nelson, Neil Young and John Mellencamp and most of the other board members at the same time!!
One of the things I reported on was the lively web activity we have here at www.farmaid.org.
The phone call- a conference call- only took about one hour but we covered a wide range of topics. Since this was one of our official board meetings there were resolutions to pass, budgets to approve and efficiency to be evaluated but beyond that, the board made plans for next year.
I can't tell you all the details but I can tell you that we think we know where the next concert will be and there are BIG EXCITING IDEAS afoot.
I was impressed--again--by the dedication and concern of our board. I got off the call more inspired than I've been in awhile. I am THRILLED to think of what next year will bring-changes to the concert- changes to the website- changes to our staff- changes to the way people see Farm Aid.
2007 is going to be a good year!
Happy Holidays to all of you and best wishes for a healthy new year!
