Many nonprofit board members like to learn as much as they can about whatever troubles them. Sometimes the right information is all they need to make sure everything is on the right track.
Both free and paid resources are available below.
The Board Doctor’s Kit: 10 Webinars for Board Success
This all-new 2022 bundle includes the full suite of 10 webinars from The Board Doctor's popular Governance Webinar Series.

The Governance Webinar Series
Beginning in 2020 and through 2021, Cathy offered a series of 10 webinars on a variety of governance-related topics. The recordings, slides, and handouts for each are available for download here individually or in the new bundle above, “The Board Doctor’s Kit: 10 Webinars for Board Success.”

Disclaimer: The Board Doctor’s webinar products include a recording of the webinar, the slide deck, and additional handouts. In some cases, the handouts are BoardSource-created documents that are available at www.BoardSource.org for free. The Board Doctor is not reselling BoardSource materials but is making them available as a convenience to our customers because they were referred to during the webinar itself.
Web-Based Resources for Small Nonprofit Organizations
None of us is in this alone! The nonprofit sector is chock full of organizations that provide “capacity building” services, resources and information that help organizations get better. Some, like BoardSource and the National Council of Nonprofits, are generalized and provide information on a wide variety of topics. Others, like #GivingTuesday or the Points of Light Foundation, are more specialized. Cathy has a compiled a list of more than 50 such organizations, complete with descriptions and web addresses.
The Board Doctor’s Annual Checkup
A Board Governance Self-Assessment
Sometimes a board member would like to see where the group is against a list of governance best practices without asking everyone on the board to participate in the self-assessment. That’s why The Board Doctor makes The Annual Checkup available for just one individual to do on their own.
- Same 100 Question Checkup
- One hour debrief meeting with Cathy
- Recommendations for priority action
- Access to The Board Doctor’s Patient Portal
When you are ready, the place to start is by scheduling your debrief meeting with Cathy. The schedule system will then take you to pay portal and from there you’ll receive a link to the self-assessment questions.
Bring The Board Doctor into Your (Virtual) Boardroom
The Board Doctor will develop and deliver a workshop directly to your board or association meeting, virtually or in-person. We can provide basic training like Roles and Responsibilities of Board Members or The Board’s Role in Fundraising (always popular!) or work with you to create a truly special one-of-a-kind experience to meet your organization’s needs.
