What is BoardBuild?

BoardBuild is an online platform designed to mobilize emerging and established leaders who want to broaden and develop their community trusteeship as board members of non-profit organizations.

Really?  How?

BoardBuild has two basic parts:

  1. Online, on-demand training in the essentials of nonprofit board governance.
  2. Online board matching between trained community leaders and nonprofit organizations seeking new board members.

This sounds great, but what does the program really look like?

BoardBuild’s self-paced, online, on-demand course features 20 lessons in six-modules:

  1. Board Member Basics
  2. Essential Guiding Documents:  Mission Statement, Bylaws, Policies, Strategic Plan
  3. Financial Statements & Budget
  4. Monitoring Agency Programs & CEO Performance
  5. Board Meetings & Committees
  6. How To Be A Great Board Member

That could be really helpful for my board.  Tell me more.

In addition to basic information such as reading financial statements and preparing for board meetings, the course provides essential information for organizational sustainability:

  • The importance of financial support by each board member
  • The complexity of CEO/staff relationships
  • Strategic planning
  • The value of a reserve fund

Wow!  BoardBuild could take our organizational capacity to the next level.  How does it work?

After course participants successfully complete the training, they’re automatically enrolled in BoardBuild’s online matching system.  Think Match.com.  They’ll fill out a profile listing their expertise and interests.

Your nonprofit can post listings for prospective board members on BoardBuild.  The program automatically matches qualified candidates with your nonprofit.

It’s really simple!  And it’s a win-win all around:  for your nonprofit, for interested/trained board candidates, and for our community as a whole.

We’re on board!  How do we sign up? 

We are excited to launch BoardBuild on July 1.  In the meantime, join our mailing list below so we can keep you up to date on the latest news.
