Help! I’m Not Getting the Raise I Was Promised.

Last week, someone I connected with a while back about a potential search came to me in a really tough spot.After stepping up and taking on new challenges in her role last year, she was promised a raise and promotion in 2022. Although her current position and organization isn’t the most perfect fit, she decided it was worth it to stay for the pay increase and new title, which more closely align with her career goals. But now it’s March…and despite her many emails and gentle reminders, her manager keeps postponing the conversation.

Why Board Term Limits Are So Important (Even Though No One’s Talking About Them!)

I’m going to say something you might not want to hear…Your board needs term limits. I understand why some nonprofit organizations hesitate to implement board term limits. Your board risks losing the experience and insight that comes with long-term board members. Recruiting new board members is time-consuming and requires many resources. And of course, board members rotating on and off can disrupt the board’s workflow.
