Easy-To-Use Board Management Software
A board portal is a type of secure, paperless software or app that allows you to communicate with board members, share documents, annotate meeting minutes and more without any of the risks or waste that a paper board book provides. Board governance is complex, demanding, and high-stakes. It requires a modern approach to power effective decision-making and drive successful outcomes. It is also cyclical in nature. BoardEffect’s board software supports modern governance best practices within and across each cycle of board activity.

Board Meeting Cycle:
Powered by Board Portals
Board governance is oriented around a regular meeting cycle that can be quarterly, bi-monthly, monthly, or sporadic in its timing. BoardEffect’s board software helps you prepare for and hold the meeting as well as manage follow-up and follow through activities post meeting.
- Online board books
Annual Board Cycle
A large number of boards’ responsibilities are annual in nature and carried-out over the course of a yearly cycle. From policy & compliance, budget & audit, appointments and elections, to work plans and evaluations, BoardEffect supports your annual strategic responsibilities simply and elegantly.

Board Development Cycle
Boards typically proceed through a development and engagement cycle, lasting (on average) 3-5 years. This tracks with the length of a single board member’s term, and ensures the board’s sustainability and continuity over time. Easily manage recruitment, nominations, on-boarding, and board education with BoardEffect (the #1 nonprofit board portal) to cultivate a high-performing board.
