    Pros

    The American Red Cross is well managed, committed to the community, and full of highly knowledgeable people.

    Cons

    Too much focus on the role of fund raising rather than tapping into the talents of all team members. This was done in pocket however. Local decision making was beginning to be reduced due to cost cutting.

    Advice to Management

    Discover the talents and passions of all volunteers and allow them to flourish
