2 responses to “Term Limits for Non-Profit Board Members”

  1. I can argue both sides of this issue. While I mostly agree that term limits are a good idea, I’ve seen many situations where very effective Board members have had to leave a Board as a result. What I do think is important is that there be a relatively easy way for Board members to leave the Board. Having term limits is one such way. I also like the idea of having a fairly active “alumni association” of former Board members, so that former Board members don’t feel like they’re losing the close connection they’ve had with the organization. And, I like the idea of allowing former Board members to continue serving on committees of the Board, as long as the Chair and a majority of the committee are Board members.
