An individual Microboard is an incorporated non-profit association designed to serve just one person. The person who is supported is a core member of the Board of Directors. Trusted friends and family members fill other positions on the Board of Directors and an extended circle of community members provides critical informal support.
With this support, control of essential resources stays in the hands of the individual person whose life is most directly affected and his or her closest allies.
A formal or informal association of Microboards can be organized to provide a broader network of mutual support and shared resources. For a detailed description and history of Microboards and Microboard Associations, see the linked article.
