Elected board vs. appointed board
Looking for some feedback on the best way to organize the board of a trail advocacy group.
I lean toward an elected board, This ensures that the group is responsive to the community, open to new blood, and accountable. I have heard concerns that having an elected board makes the group susceptible to hostile takeover from larger groups like the Sierra Club.
Doing a little research on this, I see that IMBA had an elected board in 2006, but now it is appointed?
What are your thoughts?
