Membership Program for Nonprofit Leaders

BoardSource supports individual members by providing direct access to on-demand governance and board leadership resources that are easy to understand, access, and share.

Membership Resources to Support Your Board


  • Easy to Understand Guidance on a Wide Range of Board Leadership Topics

    BoardSource has a collection of articles, tools, and templates on a wide range of governance and board leadership topics. They are short and easily digestible in format, making them perfect for quick reference. We’ve organized them by topic to help you quickly find what you’re looking for.

  • Ask-an-Expert Email Service

    BoardSource provides guidance via an email service we refer to as Ask-an-Expert. Members can send their question or issue and receive governance guidance from a BoardSource expert. Note: Information and guidance are provided with the understanding that Boardsource is not rendering professional opinions or legal advice. If such opinions are required, a CPA or licensed attorney should be sought.

  • The BoardSource Exchange

    The BoardSource Exchange is a collaborative tool that enables you to connect, engage, and share governance information with all BoardSource members — volunteers and professionals like you who are committed to effective board leadership and making a difference in their communities. We hope the Exchange will become one of your favorite go-to places to share your governance experiences, ask for advice, build relationships, and learn.

  • Additional Benefits

    Begin receiving our Resources + Solutions (R+S) biweekly emails that include tools you can download and use right away, infographics that serve as thought pieces, and other easy-to-access valuable resources. BoardSource members are also able to access member discounts on BoardSource publications, assessments, trainings, and the BoardSource Leadership Forum, our biennial conference.
