Orientation is the key for keeping a board
on the right course"

True NorthA few years ago, In Trust published an article about getting new board members set up for success through good orientation and thoughtful sharing of materials, information, and policies.

board portalsThe practice of sharing materials among the players in shared governance -- that is, members of the board, the administration, and the faculty -- can be challenging. Because the materials cover complex, oftentimes confidential issues, the mechanism for sharing must be secure. It also must be straightforward, simple, easy to use, and not too time consuming.

Board portal software can be a great solution to these challenges, but the cost is often prohibitively expensive.
