I believe there are 5 key attributes necessary to be a great executive director.  You know who has them? The woman pictured below. Seriously. Though she'd probably have to lose the outfit on a big ask.

Compelling, horrifying, etc. - because I've witnessed or experienced all of 'em. Thanks for writing. Have been sharing - and will continue to do so.

What a great story and advice to follow. You are absolutely right, that a board should look for people with the needed competencies, not just someone to sit in a chair and vote when asked.
