first board meeting

Toronto, 2016.04.19

If you're a member of Cycle Toronto, you can rest assured that the board is organized and energetic. Not only does it have working committees that actually do something, but it uses its bylaws for guidance, has an interest in reducing its own size (to let the staff do their thing), and has specialists (e.g. lawyers, professional fundraisers, finance specialists, etc). I attended a committee meeting a couple of weeks ago, and my first board meeting tonight. I am very impressed with how things are run.

It's also a refreshing change to sit with a real group, not strictly doing everything by phone or online as with my other board.

I am so sick of my board. This close to pulling the plug and saying Adios!

Sorry to hear that! It's a bit like a job and a bit like sharing a hobby with paperwork and a bunch of people with whom you share litle, isn't it.

(In which I leave the final word to someone else.)

Selfish leaders increase risk by placing themselves first. It's a fundamental mistake to assume that what is good for us personally is mutually exclusive to what is good for everyone. That kind of zero-sum game is for cowards, and in the end, we all pay the price for this type of latent, toxic leadership.
