Default Leadership

1 A name I recognize but know nothing about the person
I recognize Jim Jones but wouldn't want him on the board.
2 Willingness to wear a "kick me" sign on their back
chuckle, how true, but not important to me
3 Someone from MY part of the country
Very few people are from Fall River
4 Experience with nonprofit organizations
A definite plus but not a disqualifier
5 Experience as a Organizer, Rep/Judge or as a Cook
This is kind of what it is all about so experience here is necessary
6 Open, available, actually cares what the membership thinks
All good leaders do have these attributes.
7 Or........... What do you think is important?
Board members need to have ears larger then their mouths, and they need to ask questions rather than spout policy
