resigning from the board

When running for the board last fall, I mentioned to foundation-list that there was a strong chance I’d be a less involved/engaged member the last two months of my term, assuming I was successful in going back to school. That was, it turns out, a bad miscalculation on my part. It turns out I’ll actually be AWOL nearly the last six full months of my term, as school starts slightly earlier than I’d anticipated and the board’s term runs longer. After discussing my options with the rest of the board, I’ve decided the best thing for me to do is to resign, and for the rest of the board to select my successor.

I might write more about this later, but in a nutshell, this was not an easy or fun decision to make- despite the occasional pain, I’ve enjoyed being on the board, and have felt very honored to be elected to it repeatedly. I’m sure my replacements will be, if anything, more passionate and more motivated, so I’m excited for them and for the board going forward.
