Foundation Beyond Belief Seeks New Leader

What I have known for a couple weeks now has been made official. Foundation Beyond Belief is seeking an executive director to replace the organization’s founder, Dale McGowan, who is stepping down after five years. I am incredibly sad about that because I love and respect Dale immeasurably. But the foundation he created is bigger than one person and we must go on. I’m sure the board of directors will find an equally impressive person to run things.

Dale had this to say:

“I’m proud to have been a part of bringing FBB to where it is today. It’s the most meaningful work I’ll ever do. But I know what I do well and what my limitations are, and it’s time to turn the reins over to someone with the specific skills to take it to the next level.”

Replacing Dale will be a nearly impossible task, but his successor will step into a great situation with a wonderfully supportive board of directors and a staff that is incredibly dedicated to the group’s mission. I’ve never worked with a finer group of people. Their commitment and passion for helping others is inspiring. If you think you have what it takes to run the organization, you can see the job description and how to apply for it here. I have tremendous confidence in the board that they will choose someone fully capable of carrying on Dale’s legacy.

I only work for the foundation a few hours a week for very little money, but when someone else suggested that I apply for it two years ago, I did so for two reasons: First, because I really support what FBB does and wanted to help out. Second, because of Dale. His compassion, kindness and relentless optimism inspire even an old curmudgeon like me.

    I volunteer. First task: Put up a giant Zero Commandments monument outside our Athiest church. Then maybe join with the Gay Muslins to form that Secular HomoCaliphate we’re apparently working towards.

    It is about time they kicked that Clown out! He does not even Believe in God! Where does he get his Morals??! How can he Lead us if he thinks we all just came from monkeys!??! How can he Lead a Foundation if his foundations are based on Man’s word, rather than God’s?? Maybe now we can get a Proper leader who Believes in Christ!!

    Here’s hoping for someone who’s not a dictionary atheist.
