Member Training Session 
BoardEffect portal orientation training for organizations that have joined the Foundation’s membership program. Training includes an overview and tour of the portal, tips for management and administration of BoardEffect, and a Q&A/practice session. 

BoardEffect is an online portal that streamlines board work and provides directors easy access to important information. Accessible via computer or a free iPad app, BoardEffect will help your board communicate and collaborate effectively and improve their efficiency.

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. 

Save the date for the next BoardEffect Training on Thursday, February 12th. Registration will open soon.
