Boards, Burnout and Bylaws: Leadership Tips from a Homeschool Leader

Ever wish you could just sit down with another homeschool leader who understands you and your issues? In today’s podcast Carol Topp interviews homeschool leader Angela Weaver. Angela runs a large group in Lynchburg, Virginia and she shares insight into many topics. It will feel like you’re listening to a good friend. Angela had so much wisdom, that it takes 3 episodes!

In this episode of the HomeschoolCPA podcast, Carol Topp and Angela discuss:

  • The perils of being in leadership for too long
  • Burnout for leaders
  • How bylaws can help a homeschool group
  • Hosting elections for board members
  • The importance of term limits for homeschool board members
  • Founders syndrome-avoid it!
  • Having an events team
  • What to do if no one wants to organize events

My favorite quote from Angela in this episode is, “No events happened if two people didn’t sign up to lead it.”  Wow! She found that that one simple rule worked!

 

 

 

In the podcast, Carol mentioned the I Am a Homeschool Group Leader Facebook Group. It is a closed group (meaning you have to request to join) of 530 homeschool leaders from across the USA. You can join us here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/72534255742/
