Like Biting Into a Perfect Summer Day . . . editor notes issue #72

Like biting into a perfect summer day . . . the inner feeling of sunshine, a soft breeze, a slow peacefulness resting on your face. Despite everything going on in the world, isn't it amazing that we can still have moments of happiness?

In this issue, we keep doing our best to be refreshingly unconventional with an article on what not to do with social media, allowing you to feel like you're doing something right just by not doing anything. The Ask Rita attorneys discuss the surprising litmus test for whether social workers are exempt or nonexempt; to balance the mood, this issue's 3-Minute Vacation is a fast journey through the historical intellectual debates of the social work field. And please take a look at the Governance/Support Model for Nonprofit Boards, too.

Maybe just for the next three minutes, enjoy the feeling of a perfect summer day. -- Jan Masaoka

  • I've become rather a nonprofit nerd and reading your articles and Kim Klein's blogs give me such pleasure even when I'm so tired and should have gone home hours earlier!

  • It's my first time visiting here. I discovered countless intriguing stuff within your weblog especially the on-going conversation. From the tons of comments on your articles, I guess I'm not the only person relishing reading your website. Carry on the good work.
