I work in the Planned and Major Gifts department. I just wanted to make sure you know that the meeting earlier this morning was one of the best I have attended. The ideas and case studies that Robert Driver presented gives me a lot to think about in relation to my own work. I know it takes a lot of time and effort on your part to schedule meetings, attend to details. I appreciate those efforts. Janice R.
