Effective Board membership has many of the same characteristics as an employment situation. A good match-up of interests, needs, fit, time and timing, chemistry and last but not least skills, makes for a success.
Of course the motivations are all different when volunteering time. Therefore, a Board member needs to be self motivated to put in the requisite time, for whatever it is that they sign up for. With the exception of the Treasurer’s position, Board members are expected to attend monthly meetings: eight of those meetings are typically on Zoom and four we try to do in person.
