BoardEffect Releases New Research Report – Nonprofit Laws:  Board Rules and Regulations

BoardEffect, the leading board management software solution for mission-based organizations worldwide, today released Nonprofit Laws:  Board Rules and Regulations, a comprehensive summary and state-by-state review of laws pertaining to the work of nonprofit boards. Building on its predecessor study from 2012, Laws Governing Nonprofit Boards and Electronic Voting, this report is intended to serve as a valuable resource to nonprofit executives, administrators, and board members.

The work of nonprofit boards is complex, demanding, and high-stakes; and a working knowledge of the laws that shape this landscape is critical for the serious-minded board practitioner. “But the laws vary from state to state and their wording can be lengthy and time-consuming to decipher,” said Todd Gibby, CEO of BoardEffect. “Likewise, widespread resource constraints among nonprofits and multiple competing priorities for board administrators combine to create additional barriers to understanding these laws.” It is with all of this in mind, and to augment the efforts of busy board professionals, that BoardEffect has undertaken this study.

More than 120,000 users representing over 2,500 Boards depend on BoardEffect to manage board related information online and advance the mission-critical work of their boards.
