"I would remind all trustees that the public interest is always in the room with them at board and governance meetings.  Unseen but watching are the representatives of that public interest: the IRS, Attorney General, Congress,  press and potential beneficiaries. Expectantly they look to us to do the right things, the fair and just things that justify our foundation's existence." 

--Curtis W. Meadows, director emeritus of The Meadows Foundation, speaking to participants at the National Center's second annual "Trustee Education Institute"
