The governance and management of most organisations seems to be going swimmingly, with only 3% of respondents requesting a new CEO or Chair. Technology featured heavily on wishlists, with nearly a third of respondents saying they need a data scientist or a new website. Unsurprisingly, almost half of readers said a $4,000 grant would be the most welcome Christmas gift of all, although 8% would prefer a $2,000 untied donation.

A shout-out to everyone who called for a great end-of-year party. We hope your wish comes true.

The United Nations proclaimed 2017 the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development, and 2019 will be the International Year of Indigenous Languages. Mysteriously, the global body has failed to proclaim 2018 the international year of anything.

One group has suggested we call it the Year of the Clean and Healthy Planet. But we want to know what you think

What's your nomination? 2018: International Year of...? Tell us here.

The most creative responses will get a special mention in the next issue of OC Matters and potentially a post on our social media accounts!
