I have volunteered for this nonprofit organization for several months now. Everyone in the board was elected by the stakeholders. We are all equal in status, only different in title and role. None of us get paid for this, not even the president. Yet, this is how this president wrote to his board member.
In his own words...
"You are a soldier, it's no brainer that you must obey authority and follow the proper chain of command and know your place..."
"I made the point I need to make as president to an insubordinate (and non-performing) director. It's not my habit to answer to stupid, groundless accusations or personal attacks."
"As for your immature, disruptive and irresponsible behavior, I have tolerated it in the name of unity and in order to focus my time and attention on solving bigger organizational problems and implementing important community projects."
Honestly, what he said is not true, but nonetheless, it hurts the member psychologically and emotionally. It's insulting and humiliating.
What to do with this president? Please ADVICE!!!
