Training includes an overview and tour of the portal, tips for management and administration of BoardEffect and a Q&A/practice session. Creating your board packet becomes a simple task of dropping files into an online agenda, customized to fit the order of your board meetings. Organizing meetings becomes simple with BoardEffect's RSVP tool -- administrators survey board members on dates that work for their schedules and then select the most popular date with one click. Committee and board collaboration becomes streamlined with online discussion, live chat and voting tools.
