Energize has been my "go to" place for new and innovative ways to do my job in the field of volunteer management. I was saddened by the loss of Susan Ellis.

Betsy McFarland is a great lady and I had the honor to speak to her about one of her books a couple of years ago. I appreciate her passion and dedication to this field.

Rob is also a great guy and I have met and heard him speak a couple of time and email him now and then with ideas and questions.

I am glad to hear Energize is going on into the future. Thank you for working to keep this platform moving and growing for those of us in the trenches!
