Board Café Home

Board Café is a column for and about nonprofit boards. Short enough to read over a cup of coffee, the column appears regularly in Blue Avocado, the online magazine for people who work and volunteer in the nonprofit sector. New Board Café articles can be read on the Blue Avocado website or you can have the magazine delivered to you via email -- sign up for a free subscription at

From 1997 to mid-2008, Board Café was a standalone publication. You can access past issues from this period in the Board Café Archives.

The Best of the Board Café and Best of the Board Café 2 are available for purchase. The books offer a compilation of ideas, information, opinions, and resources to give nonprofit board members just-in-time guidance on real-life organizational demands. Order today!
