Ask-an-Expert Email Service

Answers to your questions, directly from a governance expert.

Boardsource has been working with and supporting nonprofit boards and leaders for 30 years. The expertise we’ve gained informs our members-only Ask-an-Expert email service, which provides you with the opportunity to ask one of our experts questions related to best governance practices via email. Our goal is to get back to you with an answer within two business days.

Have a question related to COVID-19? Check out our resource page where we’ve compiled some of the most common questions we are seeing in our sector. This service has been open to the community at this time and will become a members-only benefit again on September 1st.

Please note that while we are happy and well positioned to answer questions about the roles and responsibilities of nonprofit boards, we are unable to address issues related to specific legal or financial issues that your board or organization may be facing.

We look forward to assisting you.

Thorough resources provided and nicely written correspondence. I think that this service is very good and well worth the price of membership — for this service alone.
