BoardEffect Grows Partner Network


Philadelphia, PA – September 15, 2016

BoardEffect, the leading board portal solution for mission-based organizations worldwide, helps the governing bodies of more than 150 education institutions manage board information and elevate organizational performance.  Building on this history and foundation, numerous organizations have partnered with BoardEffect to expand its presence and enhance its offerings within the education community.

The Association of Independent Colleges of Pennsylvania (AICUP) the Wisconsin Association of Independent Colleges and Universities (WAICU), and CharterSource have joined BoardEffect’s Referral Partner Network in order to deliver value to their member institutions.  These partners’ member institutions receive governance-related content, simplified access to board portal technology, and preferential member pricing for BoardEffect.  “BoardEffect’s commitment to good governance shows in the company’s resources devoted to the software application and to its clients and partners. BoardEffect offers expertise not only about software, but also about board decision-making and different modes of governance. No one else is so focused on improving board governance in education,” said Tim Alexander, VP of Finance and Administration of AICUP.  BoardEffect also recently attained membership in the InCommon Federation, a consortium of U.S. education and research organizations operated by Internet2 that provides a secure and privacy-preserving trust framework, including single sign-on convenience.

The work of nonprofit boards is complex, demanding, and high-stakes.  Educational organizations must balance the need for strong governance and organizational leadership with the mission-critical task of fulfilling the needs of students. “Through collaboration, BoardEffect and education institutions can ease the adoption of tools that can support and streamline board-related activities,” said Todd Gibby, CEO of BoardEffect. “BoardEffect stands ready to assist with this opportunity.”

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.
