New Presidents and Board members changing every 2 years or more, possessing different levels of management and work experience make it extremely difficult to maintain continuity in an organization and the workplace. Do the best you can by making decisions based on what you know at the time, as you will seldom receive input, if even responses from Board members. Don't delay the decisions. Treat the organization as if it were your own company, and as if it makes a difference to the quality of life for many people.
