Yes, the operational stuff is what makes it so big a job. A lot of that could now be delegated to committees gradually, but there was a long time when that wasn't possible because many of the committees were in a mess. One of the current board members mentioned the average is now nearer 10 hours a week, with 30+ on busy weeks, so it sounds like it is slowly improving.

There was a proposal for an advisory board back in 2011, revised and nearly approved in 2012 - I would love to see that dusted off and implemented. That would give a good place for the emerita board, founders and people like Orlando Jones and Cory Doctorow to network and advocate on behalf of the Org. Doing that alongside delegating more of the operational work to committees should get the board workload a bit closer to manageable. But several committees would then need another review, as some of those committee chair roles are also 30+ hours a week, though a lot better than they used to be.
