[From a note sent to the Raising Private Monies instructors] “Thank you both for sharing your wisdom, expertise and firsthand case studies with all of us at the SAA workshop on Friday. The material you covered will undoubtedly change the way in which I approach my consulting work as well as my service as a public library board member. As archivists and collections managers, I recognize we all play a role as fundraisers, educators, and enthusiastic advocates at one time or other. Thank you for sharpening our skills in all of these arenas!” — Janine St.Germain
