How OnBoard Helps Associations

OnBoard helps associations with memberships of all kinds, shapes, and sizes.

Put Your Mission First

More than 90% of association board members say they serve over 172 hours a year because they support the mission of the organization. OnBoard compliments this dedication, keeping directors more regularly engaged and completely focused on leading your mission forward with a renewed focus.

OnBoard Builds Board Continuity

Two-thirds of association and nonprofit boards have term limits — this churn makes getting new board members a critical challenge for associations. OnBoard accelerates knowledge sharing and extends your institutional memory by serving as a complete historical record. Every document, past meeting, and decision ever made, in one place.

A Chamber With a Story to Tell

“The really exciting thing about using OnBoard is that I am able to put all Board materials in one place and instantly make it accessible to all Board members. We’re all on the same page at the same time and we’re able to focus on our vision of moving the organization forward.”

-Katie Roetter, Executive Director at Troy Area Chamber of Commerce

How OnBoard Works
Analytics But Cut Off

Measure Your Engagement

OnBoard Engagement Analytics offers associations real-time insights into how your board is interacting with meeting materials. Know when board books are read, where annotations are made, and what sections are receiving the most attention from the board. 

With Members Everywhere, Pull Together a Secure Conversation From Anywhere

Board Members yearn for greater interaction and collaboration – more than 50% of association directors never meet the CEO before their first meeting. With OnBoard Messenger, Directors can bridge this divide and receive the crucial engagement they need to improve their ability to provide guidance and counsel.

Build a Board Book in Minutes, Get Information Out Weeks in Advance

Association governance is complex and often separated by geography. And yet 87% of Association Directors expect more than a week to prepare. OnBoard enables board books to be built in minutes, so directors can be prepared to lead the search for a new CEO or make a tough call about a financial surprise.

"The Association tested several Board portals and ultimately decided to select Passageways OnBoard because of its ease of use for Association staff and for our Board members. The collaborative functions of OnBoard were also important to us. MBA's staff can work together to plan and produce Board meetings and materials online and then quickly notify our Board when the materials are ready for their review. The interface is simple to navigate and there are plenty of extra features that make it easy for our Board members to go paperless."
