Moving from a volunteer-only to staffed organization is a huge milestone in the lifecycle of a nonprofit. How do you know when you are ready? How do you know what the organization needs? Part 1 of our series will look at these questions, among others:

  • Why do we believe that we need to hire staff at this time?
  • What positions (functions) do we need to fill? Administrative, executive, or other?
  • What can we pay/what can we afford?
  • Are there power dynamics involving a founder (or other) that we need to address?
  • How do we fully embrace the transition from one organizational structure (all-volunteer) to the other (one with staff)?
  • Are there obvious candidates internally or will we be starting/searching from scratch?
  • How do we handle potential conflicts of interest if we are considering a candidate from the Board?
