The deed is done

I quit my job. As suspected, the board president did not know anything about my concerns prior to my telling them to her, and she did everything she could to get me to stay. I agreed to stay as an employee through Dec 22, or until they find someone else, whichever is sooner. I also agreed to stay on as a consultant on a project basis if they don't find someone by Dec 22, meaning that I would continue to do the ongoing, basic projects but would not be "on call" for admin work and would not be liable for a certain amount of hours per week. But I also made it clear that I want to move on to do my own non-profit, so they don't need to keep me on just to appease me. I want to go ASAP.

It feels somewhat nice to know that they think it will take a while to replace me. I brought a lot to this job, and I think the board needs to think about the fact that it was the behavior of the executive director that encouraged me to leave. Hopefully they take that into consideration as they hire the new person.



  1. go Go GO! FREEEEEEDOM!!!!!

  2. Congrats!

    And the lead up to your last day is nice too. Every time something untoward happens, you get to say, "just X more days." You don't get that if you quit effective right now.

  3. I just have one piece of advice: if you can't be with the one you love honey, love the one you're with.

    Er... maybe I meant: Don't get involved with a land war in Asia.

    Or... um... don't eat yellow snow?

    Whatever... you get the point.

  4. Give me a two times tuesday hoo-ha!



  5. courts- yeah, baby!

    uberbaud- You're right. the lead up has been pretty spectacular. I haven't felt this relaxed in a long time!


Thanks for commenting- YOU ROCK!
