Abstract

The OHNo Swim Club is a small non-profit organization whose board of directors is swayed from its mission by one of its wealthy members. In the process the club loses control of its mission, makes a decision that comes close to financially bankrupting the organization and eventually loses several members before it rebuilds itself with a stronger dedication to its mission. Through the rebuilding process, it learns the importance of choosing board members with financial sophistication, the difficulties of a start-up enterprise and the importance of maintaining a mission and communicating that mission to members.
