As a first answer, when the Board figures that it needs something done
badly enough to start suggesting that they need to hire someone.  8-)

The Board can explain in more detail their thinking on this, and it's
probably a good idea for them to do so.  My impression from the
outside is that they're probably right and that it's probably about
time to do so, if not past it.  But I'm not involved in a lot of the
community activities intimately, so I don't know how accurate my
impression is.

I agree that this is a good conversation to have.  Both more employees
and more effeciently focused volunteer efforts on problem areas will
both help.  Information flow on the percieved trouble spots helps
everyone see what needs to be done.
