Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I had an incredible week starting with a family business anniversary held at the Vancouver Art Gallery and recognition for the Nonprofit Law Blog as the 26th most influential law blog. Thankful for so much, including the privilege of working with some great nonprofits and an amazing associate attorney.
