Board Member Term Limits, Good or Bad?

Should associations consider board member term limits?

My personal opion, I don’t think associations should consider limits, why you ask? Why should you have to tell a good volunteer that they can no longer be on the board when there may not be someone else to step up to the plate.

Community members who are unhappy with the board need to realize that the answer is not pushing people off the board who activly are trying to make a differnce in the communiy. The answer is to start getting involved in the community to try and make a difference as well.

Being on the board of directors can be at times a thankless job, where you only hear from the community when they are UNHAPPY with something you have done. Becoming involved in your community by attending meetings, voting, and listening causes you to become much more aware of how your association is operating.
