    In reference to the Ada Initiative – when a founder or other long-time ED steps down, the board should examine the question of continuing the organization prior to initiating a search. It would be interesting to understand the board’s position during this process.

      Hi Patti- according to the ADA web announcement, the board spent a year planning the transition and the ED that was hired did not fit with the organization. Then the board explored making the organization all volunteer, as they had decided that the success of the organization was a “direct result of their experiences, skills, strengths and passions” referring to the 2 co-founders.
      thanks for your comment!
