AY YAH! What a horrible thing for so many reasons
that I can't even think through at the moment being so
aghast. I wonder if the Volunteer Manager had any
input in the interview process or hiring of the new
ED. My guess is not. What a cautionary tale and
reminder that we can't assume that everyone knows the
total value of the volunteer program.
Should anyone feel the need to have great examples of
youth volunteer involvement in museum settings please
drop me a line. there are so many wildly creative
programs out there.
Yours in jaw dropped-ness.
