Maintaining Order: Best Practices for Board Discipline


As low as $49 per board member (based on a 10-member board)

Do you have a board member who is constantly causing internal disruptions? Has your board been rocked by a major scandal? Do you need to remove a board member immediately? In this course, you will learn the best practices of upholding a code of conduct and implementing a disciplinary action plan.


Being a member of a Board carries a high standard of accountability, responsibility and also considerable scrutiny. When the behaviour of a Board Member is inappropriate, there are consequences, for themselves, for the Board and for the Organization. These consequences can eventually lead to the removal of a Board Member, and even more seriously, they can result in significant reputation damage and legal action to the Board and to the Organization if not addressed properly.

With this course you will receive a detailed 15-page governance guide, approximately 25-minute video training module and a sample governing policy you can start using today to implement standards and responsibilities to hold board members accountable to inappropriate behaviour.

  • Who is responsible for executing a disciplinary plan and how
  • How to address serious incidents that may have legal implications
  • How to address disruptive board members
  • How to prepare a communication strategy for key stakeholders
  • How to mitigate risk to your reputation
