I hear what you say, and it is indeed a point of concern. It is not
without precedent though (it happened for a handful of people on the
development side of things), and I wouldn't say it is a necessarily
bad thing, that in a thriving community excellent volunteer work
might lead to a job offering down the road.

Perhaps a way to make this more palatable is, as Michael suggests,
to pick highly-respected individuals, that are well integrated with
the community already.
