Complaining to the Board Chair

What do you do when someone makes a complaint directly to your board chair? Stacey has some thoughts. Also, a board wants to keep the budget a secret from the executive director, and somebody wants to know about booking discounts for services as revenue, so (of course) Andy talks about that for what seems like hours!
