“While serving on a board and knowing what it entails may seem straightforward, more often than not, it’s complex and challenging for its members, and as a result can inhibit the success of organizations in achieving their mission and vision,” said Jeff Allyn, NXTBoard CEO. “The mission of NXTMission Austin is to transform the way a board operates, allowing it the opportunity to be more efficient, transparent, outcome focused and more readily able to support the organization in achieving its goals.”

With NXTBoard, regardless of board type, users can plan all aspects of a meeting, from agendas to plans to supporting documentation to keeping minutes, as well as set, track and monitor goals, making the day-to-day of being a board member easier and more importantly helping boards have a greater impact in their community.
