4 Tombstones ..
1. Sometimes say my tombstone will read, "who authorized that" ... Example: angry member at meeting certain a new program absent member input. Belief that if didn't hear, must mean never announced, surveyed, reported, approved; and if position don't like, then either not asked or not "listening to the members". Since no association decision will ever get universal support (e.g., complete grassroots support) - some percentage can claim on any issue at any association they aren't being listened to; which is translation for if you were listening you would be telling me what I want to hear - and you're not.
2. One of my favorite national association presidents has saying for association leaders: No one ever put on tombstone, "I made budget".
3. Picture for disbelievers - "I told you I was sick". (#16)
4. Speaker (whose name can't remember) said his dad used to ask him "what are you going to do with your dash" - and then showed picture of tombstone with a birth year and the dash -- Reminded us to use our dash wisely.
