“If another institution or a peer of mine were to ask about becoming an AGB member, I would tell them to do so emphatically. The resources are great. Not only printed resources, but the personnel assistance and working through the technical side, the governance side.”

There are four key reasons institutions and institutionally related foundations become AGB members. AGB membership enables boards, leaders, and board professionals to:

  1. Apply best practices throughout their operations.
  2. Use director education to drive continuous improvement.
  3. Anticipate emerging trends, risks, and challenges.
  4. Understand the impact of regulations and policies.
