Good Goodbye and Gratitude to Outgoing Board Member: Megan Norton, Nominations Director

It’s that time of the year again when the FIGT community thanks and gives our fond farewells to outgoing Board Members. In this post, we hear from Megan Norton as she addresses the FIGT community about her time serving as Nominations Director.

Dear Global Friends,

It has been an honor and privilege to serve as the Nominations Director for the past four years. Serving on the FIGT Board has been more than ticking boxes, meeting a quota, or writing reports. It’s been an experience of creating a culture of radical kinship, courageous decision-making, and inspiring both trust and respect in our global community. It’s been an experience of listening and learning and of hearing and understanding. Being a part of FIGT leadership in this role has been so rewarding to me professionally and personally. I have felt valued and supported to have a deep sense of belonging and contribution.

The highlight for me has been to serve alongside leaders who build faith - not just trust - in a culture of radical kinship. In so many different ways and times and for different reasons I've stretched myself, leaned into discomfort, learned from mistakes, grown in confidence, built discernment skills, expanded my local/global community, and realized how giving-back is multiplied in hundred-fold blessings back to me. I'm not leaving FIGT, basically only the 2-hour monthly Board of Director meetings. :)
