Introduction to Board Chairs Academy

Thinking about signing up for Board Chairs Academy but want to learn more? Join us for a preview of this unique online learning and community-building experience for nonprofit board members.

Board Chairs Academy is a suite of learning and consultation services meeting nonprofit boards where they are at. Introduced by Third Sector Company in 2006, over 500 organizations have participated in the United States and Canada.

Since 2006, Third Sector Company has offered its highly-acclaimed “Board Chairs Academy” based on the philosophical viewpoint that “Governance as Stewardship” is the most accurate depiction of board obligations essential to advancing community causes. Beginning in 2024, the Academy has been modified to welcome our customers to take part in one or more Academy Learning Labs, as well as access customized board training programs and consultations.

A trained faculty of instructors who have completed and taught many Board Chairs Academies over the years present each 2.5-hour online experiences to benefit individual board members as well as groups of board members who choose to learn together. Each Learning Lab offers content delivery, a featured guest board speaker, and group discussion.  

Third Sector Company, Inc. is committed to advancing justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion as foundational to its programs.

We acknowledge and honor the fundamental value and dignity of all people; and we pledge our individual and organizational efforts to build respect, dignity, caring, and equitable treatment for all. As an organization, we are committed to transforming the world into one that promotes social justice and freedom from oppression, including but not limited to, racism, sexism, classism, heterosexism, ageism, and ableism.

Thus, we aim to be adaptable, actively anti-racist, embracing cultural differences, and to be accessible for people who are differently resourced and differently abled. Since we do not want financial hardship to be a barrier to participation, there are several seats reserved in each of our fee-based programs for confidentially awarded scholarships. We encourage those from historically underserved communities to apply.
