|A friend of mine formed a non-profit organization. Over 25+ years, the organization did a lot of good in the business community and the cities it worked with. While focused on the organization's primary purpose, my friend didn't notice the majority of board members had changed. The majority were now employees of the cities they served, not the businesses. The bylaws started to change, activities started to change, membership started to fall off and because the majority of the board members didn't understand how to raise funds, fundraising all but stopped.
