Must be a valid reason

 

Why would a volunteer board of directors act without good cause on a matter they know will be controversial? There is speculation about the reasons the Museum of Arts and Culture board voted to terminate the employment of its executive director, Forrest Rodgers.

Some have suggested the board acted improperly. What would motivate the board to act without justification? The MAC is a public organization. The actions of its board – especially on a matter as significant as terminating its executive director – will not go unnoticed, much less unexamined. Why would the board take such an action other than in their collective belief that it is in the best interest of the MAC? It is hard to fathom reasons for a board of volunteers to act otherwise.
