I see no particular reason not to post Sue's job description, but I'll
ask the Chair to confirm that.

The differences between a Board-level consultant and a freshly minted
ED aren't that great, as the Board needs to build a trust relationship
with this new staff member in either case. Beyond 3-6 months in the
future, should the professional relationship develop as expected, this
status will become too limiting, and I hope the remaining constraints
can be removed within that timeframe.
