Ok, Serious Subject Time. Let's have some real talk about your board of directors: How do you fire someone who's championed your organization? What should you say?
Or maybe it's the one who's soooo nice and gets the vision, and they've been on the board for a billion and a half years, but they want to keep things like they've always been and don't see any reason to do something different than your annual stuffy fundraising gala.
Could it be that member who has best best best intentions but can never make it to the meetings? Or the events? And who struggles fulfilling their duties as a board member—fundraising, recruiting, supporting your organization's vision?
Whoever you're thinking of, surely they have amazing qualities, which is why they're on the board in the first place. But being on a nonprofit board of directors isn't for everyone (trust us, we know!), and there's no shame in realizing that the work would get done better, faster, and with less drama if you could do it without them.
