Whoops. Condo Board Renovation Issues

I own a small condo apartment. In December, I contacted the condo board to ask for information about how to proceed with changing my floating floor because I had a 6'X6' section of damaged flooring (just from 7 years of wear and tear... the original materials were really really shoddy). A representative responded immediately and gave me the material specifications and informed me that I would need to obtain authorization before proceeding with the work. I didn't proceed with the work at the time... [more inside]

Charming bulletin board for first grade class

My forte as a teacher is not the decorating/bulletin boards/cutesy stuff so I was hoping to solicit input. Tomorrow we have a leadership themed walk through for the parents (it is our year-long equity theme). My class had students write about how they are a leader ("pushing in my chair, helping friends when they fall down on the playground," etc.) We took photographs of them in super hero poses with a super hero cape to go with the blurb they wrote. So they each have a little poster with their photograph as a superhero and the way they are a leader and now we need to put it up in the hall fancily. Now we need a pun or background display for their work. Like the other teachers have things like a big mirror made out of tin foil and it says, "I can see the leader in me." Stuff like that. So, super hero themed + leadership + charming but also doable within a day in terms of the decorative work load and supplies needed. Any ideas?

What will happen to the volunteers?

An non-profit organization with staff and volunteers has been non-union for its existence. Because of proposed changes by its board of directors, staff have applied to unionize. Some staff perform the same tasks as volunteers, but volunteers perform the overwhelming majority of the core work of the organization. The ratio of volunteers to staff is about 35 to 1. First, can a non profit unionize? And second, if it becomes a union shop, what will be the status of the volunteers?

Not too serious, not too silly board games

I'm looking for some board game suggestions. The target audience would never have the patience for serious German-style strategy games like Settlers of Catan. On the other hand, party games like Cranium or Apples to Apples or Cards Against Humanity are too freewheeling and silly for them. What are some games that fall into that sweet spot between serious and silly? Examples could be Rapidough, Pictionary, Balderdash. I haven't played it but I think Ticket to Ride might also fit in here.

Good strategy games for the XBox?

I've just been lent an XBox 360 discovered that I'm utterly, embarrassingly dreadful at First (or Third) Person Shooters. What I have enjoyed beyond all expectations though is Petroglyph's splendid Panzer General: Allied Assault (I'm a big time tabletop and card gamer and own the physical game too). So, lovely hivemind, can you suggest any excellent card/war/strategy games for an XBox I might enjoy just as much? Thanks!

Which officer role(s) should the founder of a small nonprofit take?

I'm starting a small nonprofit. It is just myself at this point, though I have a very serious organization verbally committed to seed money and promotion. I have not yet solicited a board of directors or officers. What do most sole operators do? Do I double serve as executive director and board chair, at least initially? Or, do I take on the most labor-intensive offices of treasurer/secretary? I throw this out to the experts here, of whom there seem to be many, based on my perusal of nonprofit threads.
