The PMIWDC Governance and Operations Boards manage a very complex membership organization, with an annual budget of over $1M, and over 10,500 chapter members.  These boards have risen to a high level of sophistication in the operation of the chapter, with innovation and new ways of supporting the membership added every year.  And yet, as successful as the boards have become at creating membership value, the "ways" of doing business become outmoded as complexity continues--the very stability the boards provide the chapter tends to stasis for the boards' culture and interaction.  Enter the change manager...but what happens when the change manager is the volunteer leader with no actual authority, and when the culture change must be of the leadership itself?  Can change be purposeful and successful?  The story isn’t yet fully told, but stay tuned as the barber must cut his own hair -- when the change management consultant becomes the Chief Operating Officer and then the Chief Executive Officer of the volunteer board, and now has "to do it!"
