Truths About Volunteering #21

Leaving a sinking ship takes valor.

Spent time today with a wonderful seasoned volunteer who's taking a 2nd turn at the presidency. Yes, the chapter was sinking, but it's still taking on water. I learned three years ago, that allowing the ship to "sink" brought out volunteers who didn't step forward as long as I would handle "it". We in national positions need to give our long-term volunteers the right to "leave" and to acknowledge their valor. It's the only way to change the tide.
