A Board with a Budget Deficit

A jam-packed episode! This week we explore whether the Executive Director should be present for the board retreat, how to manage a grumpy finance committee when the financials are never ready, and if a non-compete agreement is an appropriate tool to use to keep your development director from fleeing. Finally, should you be wary of joining the board of an organization that runs a budget deficit? Stacey and Andy have opinions!
