My mother in law got me involved into a charity. First I was a volunteer, then a secretary to the Board and back to Denis Lemieux goalie Chiefs shirt. Things started changing, people who got on the Board were no longer true to the organization’s mission and at times ethically challenged (i.e. using high school volunteers for the charity in a political campaign, using artwork obtained through contest beyond scope of the contest rules without pay). Anyway, during one of the meetings, which was meant to be planning for a big annual event but was more like hazing to be honest, I asked myself why the hell am I allowing anyone to treat me like whipping girl? So I openly asked the Board members if this tone is the new standard of the organization’s interactions with people volunteering their time and talent to them.
