If I were talking to another Executive Director, I would highly recommend that they think about participating [in CCLI]...As a director you’re pulled in so many different ways everyday, and everything is very deadline oriented, and there are always a number of things in the back of your mind that you want to work on that you never get to work on. This was a chance to really delve into something that was very rewarding, very beneficial to the whole staff, [and] really good for staff morale. Even if you are having a difficult time financially or even if you’re very busy, [participating in CCLI] inspires staff and energizes them. I would highly recommend [CCLI] to another Executive Director.
