An average workload of that number of hours for a voluntary Board role rings giant alarm bells for me suggesting something needs to be amended in the structure of the org!

My - admittedly limited - current understanding is that the Board functions are an operational Board as well as having a strategic/advisory role?

Sounds like there;s be a pressing need to get some professional outside help to revisit the structure and separate out advisory from operational perhaps keeping the elected reps for the strategic/advisory Board and having the operational function more like committees?

Or could the operational work be delegated down to committees - which may mean resourcing up the committees so they can handle the workload!

But yeah - expecting people to handle 30+ hours a week is just not sustainable and now I see why so many people burn out so very fast regardless of what else may be going on!
