That's exactly correct. Another term for it is 'volunteer'. :) You're
certainly welcome to volunteer to improve it yourself, of course.
This is not to say I'm proud of the level of service I've provided
this year; I certainly would have liked to have been more responsive
and timely, and deeply wish I could have done better. I certainly
wouldn't be able to improve it next year, which is part of why I'm
stepping away from the board overall. But I've been trying to keep a
lot of other balls in the air, and I have received very little in the
way of thanks for the work I *have* done, so I'm not going to lose too
much sleep over this overall.
I have a lot to say in this thread in general; I think Dave is right
that it is more than high time we re-examined the structure of the
Foundation and relationship of Foundation, board, and community, even
if we might disagree on the particulars. But I'm swamped with a lot of
other things right now so it might take several more days (or even a
week) to get to them. If that isn't professional enough, I apologize
