"Don't Panic!"

Here's a wonderful quote from a meeting I attended this morning of Santa Cruz County (California) nonprofit Executive Directors, discussing their response to the current financial crisis:

"Don't panic. Not because there isn't reason to panic - there is - but because panic doesn't work."

So, what is your organization doing to respond to the current economic crisis? Have you felt it yet, or have you somehow been spared? I've just set up a survey to gather your responses - Click Here to take survey - Thanks!

(And for those who've wondered if I'd ever blog again, yes, I'm still alive and working. Just working a bit too much in my current Interim ED position... dealing with the just these questions of whether or not we should be panicking.)
