We must elevate our thinking from down in the tactical weeds to a higher level to gain an objective big-picture view – and counsel on how to maximize the efficiency in the communities we serve.
For our programs to succeed, the entire community must be involved and be represented on the Board of Directors. These volunteer’s represent three community sectors: (1) public elected officials because they formally represent both the public and the local government; (2) the poor because they know the problems of poverty; and (3) the balance of the community because the agency cannot succeed without support and participation of the other service agencies, private employers, churches, unions, law-enforcement, etc.
