For the past 18 months, we have been working on a restructuring/merger with two other not-for-profit organizations. We put new board member recruitment on hold because of uncertainty about whether we would exist as a free-standing organization going forward. The restructuring has fallen apart, and while we continue to explore new collaborations with other organizations, we are not pursuing a merger. Now that we know we will continue to exist, we need to engage in thoughtful board development.
