Boards are the owners of nonprofits, yet they usually don't work there! This can cause a disconnect and dysfunction. In addition, most boards don't get the orientation and training they need to be successful. Enter...the Board Agreement.
In this 8-module mini-course, we will explain what boards are so you can be equipped to know how to develop them. Also, we will explain the elements of a good board agreement. We will also give you a copy of a sample board agreement.
In less than an hour, we'll cover:
- What boards are
- Why boards need contracts/agreements
- Elements of a board agreement
- How to implement if your board isn’t new/is new
- How to enforce the agreement
- When to review and amend

Hi, I’m Sean, and I'm the Nonprofit Fixer!
I’ve worked in nonprofit organizations since I was 16 (over 27 years).
I love nonprofits. I study nonprofits. I also lead and fix nonprofits. Whether its local, state or national - or charitable or political – I have helped grow and develop organizations of all kinds. I've served as an Executive Director for 5 organizations. I am a coach and consultant for boards, executive directors and activists of all stripes. I’ve worked in communications, victim-services, civil rights, environment, policy, bullying prevention, lobbying, management and much more.
I learned how to run a nonprofit the hard way – by watching someone do it poorly. I’ve also been thrown into the deep end and told to sink or swim. I don’t want that to happen to anyone else, so I have made it a commitment to my business to train people how to effectively fundraise and manage organizations for maximum impact. I’m nationally known and respected, and I’m a really swell guy (just wait, you’ll see!).
Best of all, I cut through the BS. My tools and trainings are straight-to-the-point, immediately useful, and chock-full of tips and tactics you can start using today.
