What’s the Best Size for a Homeschool Group Board?

Do you wonder if your homeschool group leadership team is too large or too small? What is the best size to be?

In today’s podcast Carol Topp interviews homeschool leader Angela Weaver. Angela leads a large group in Lynchburg, Virginia and she shares advice on many topics. Angela had so much experience, that it takes three episodes and this is the second of three parts!

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

  • How to avoid “freaking out” if an event doesn’t happen
  • The perfect size of a board: large or small?
  • Having teams do many jobs so the board isn’t doing everything
  • How to improve communication on a board
  • Having homeschool dads on the board
  • Is an odd number of board members essential?
  • What is the board president’s job? Is it to do everything? NO!

My favorite quote from Angela in this episode is “I’m not willing to sacrifice my sanity for a picnic.”  Can you relate?

 

 

 

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/
