The BoardEffect® Toolkit
Convenient Access to Resources on Good Governance
Board members are responsible for the direction and oversight of organizations. However, this task isn't possible if board members don't know the policies and procedures that are in place.
Ideally, your board not only knows the policies that exist, but periodically reviews the policies to ensure they reflect current realities. Having a set of sample policies and expert guidance on hand can help your board meet its critical governance responsibilities more effectively.
Enter the BoardEffect® Toolkit.
In BoardEffect®, board members have convenient access to hundreds of sample policies, governance documents, reports, and more. Called the BoardEffect® Toolkit, this set of resources informs your boardroom discussions. The Toolkit can help your board make better policy decisions by providing high quality background research and examples.
The Toolkit includes:
The BoardSource® "Nonprofit Policy Sampler, 2nd Edition," co-authored by governance experts Barbara Lawrence and Outi Flynn.
The "Policy Sampler" includes:
- 240+ sample policies, job descriptions, committee charters, codes of ethics, board member agreements, mission and vision statements, and more.
- Your board will be sent a hard copy of the book to use as a shelf reference.
- Links to sample meeting minutes, a recipe for a Board Manual, sample evaluations, and other documents.
- Links to helpful articles on governance written by leading experts.
- ...and more.
