I have waited for over a year to get news from the Center about its operations. They still do not provide any financial statements or word about their condition. I stopped contributing in 2012. I volunteered to help on their marketing and media, but their follow up and capacity for such was poor. All ideas fell by the wayside. A board member told me that their reserve cash is down to zero, staff time and pay has been cut back, board members are lightly involved, and they have less than 20 members now.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Publish annual report and financial statement, inform public and supporters of how the Center is doing. Survey the base. Get a news article with widespread circulation. Improve board capacity and leadership.

This organization while admirable in mission, seems secretive or unresponsive. There is no published information about how the group is doing. Emails sent to them sometimes don't get responses. They lack a newsletter or annual report. Financial statements are not shared with the public or even with members. Their web site is out of date, confusing and hard to use. They would seem to need better leadership and management.
