Your Board members are the leaders of your nonprofit. If they don’t understand their role, you’re bound to be stuck in Board chaos and be frustrated at the lack of support you get from them.
Board Training in a Box
If you’ve got BIG plans for growing your nonprofit, you need your Board to help lead the way. Unfortunately, if you’re like most, you’re dragging them along.
Why? It’s simple really.
Most people join a nonprofit Board without fully understand what they just said “yes” to. They don’t know what their role is or what their responsibilities are. And in the absence of that knowledge, they gravitate to whatever is fun or familiar. And that’s where the micromanaging starts.
You need a Board to help you plan for the future not just nod their head at whatever ideas you through out. You need them to help fundraise and even make their own donation. You’d love them to be excited about the organization’s mission and about changing lives.
Good news: it’s all fixable.
A little training can go a LONG way. Most people WANT to do the right thing – they just need to know what that is.
While our team delivers a lot of in-person Board training, we realize that doesn’t work for every nonprofit or every budget. That’s where Board Training in a Box comes in.

- How to find, recruit, and keep great new Board members

- The best way to run an effective, efficient, enjoyable Board meeting (in an hour!)
