GC Place

Your Connection To Expertise

Are you a board member, the chair of the board, a board administrator or the CEO/executive director of your organization?

Of course, you want to do well in your position. You want to know that your time and effort is making a difference in your organization and in your community. That’s why you’ve chosen to be on the board, or agreed to be appointed to the board, or are assisting the board in an administrative capacity.

Like any other job or volunteer position, the more informed you are about your responsibilities and how to proactively and more effectively fulfill your role, the more value you can add to the organization’s success.

That’s why we created GC Place™

Think of it as your source for all things board governance. We’ve created a dynamic site with access to a broad range of governance expertise in a wide range of fields…delivered as online bite-sized continuing education. All the information is stored and indexed for easy access.

It’s available on video, in articles, podcasts and webinars. Once a month, you’ll have access to one of our consultants in live webinars with Q&A.  

It’s affordable!

A monthly subscription cost of $20/month per person or $95 month for your whole board gives you easy access to governance basics or in-depth, challenging content according to your needs.

Combined Years of Experience


I have been a very satisfied subscriber to the services provided by The Governance Coach for the past few years.  Their resources have contributed to my work with governing boards across the educational network of the Brothers of the Christian Schools and helped me to proceed in an efficient and clear manner.  The newest service provided — GC Place — is an innovative, reasonably priced way to get training and consultation.  Jannice Moore and her team have mastered webinar technology and made it quite easy for me to get a refresher, look at new areas, and network with others.  The Governance Coach folks are accessible and always focused on what is on my mind.  Bravo!

-Brother Robert Wickman, La Salle Brothers’ Community


For over 20 years I have had the opportunity to work with The Governance Coach.  GC Place is one more example of The Governance Coach’s engaging and practical tools developed to assist users with the expertise required to achieve governance success.   The added bonus for me is the opportunity to ask questions related to my specific challenges as I work to enhance my knowledge and understanding of Policy Governance.

Bergen and Moore have combined their years of experience in applying the Policy Governance® model to school boards in the form of a novel. The challenges and frustrations faced by the characters will sound familiar to many readers as they draw you into the story.

Follow the adventures of Anthony Reyes, frustrated Chair of the Norcrest School Board, as he is introduced to a better way of governing by Katherine Billings, Chair of the Dixon School District Board. As the story unfolds, Anthony has coffee chats with Katherine and visits her board to observe how Policy Governance could transform the way his board operates. The Norcrest School Board then engages on a learning journey as it moves to adopt Policy Governance® as the model for governing its school district.

This book encourages readers to identify questions and potential myths they might hold about Policy Governance, and self-evaluate their current knowledge prior to reading the novel. The book is accompanied by two study guides – one for readers new to Policy Governance, and one for readers already using Policy Governance. These guides contain a few questions for each chapter, making them an ideal way for a board to learn together.  Includes workbooks for those new to Policy Governance and one for those familiar with Policy Governance.
