The Boomers ride in....

As regular readers know, part of generation change is that the Boomers are (and will continue to) come to nonprofits AFTER their first career, some as employees, some as volunteers. Business Week in the December 17 issue deals with this in a series of stories under their regular feature called "Second Careers" The two stories of the four in this issues set I liked the best were:

about picking the right board of directors to get on, and

about ways to work for nonprofits after your first career is done.

By the way, I see tons of this kind of transition going on, and it requires patience on both sides....there is usually a bit of culture clash!
