Directors U is an educational website. The main feature is an online library of topical resources for current and prospective board members and chief executives developed by charitySTRONG and other highly regarded governance capacity-building organizations. Materials describe New York State laws and regulations for charities; board roles and responsibilities; and, board operations and structure. There are board assessments, orientation manual outlines and sample documents and policies. Some items can be downloaded directly from the website. We have included many free publications and webinars along with links to a select number of books, subscriptions, and courses that are available for a fee from other providers.
Directors U also includes a list of resource organizations that support nonprofit organizations by offering training and consulting services.
Accessing information on Directors U is free and requires registration with charitySTRONG. We encourage nonprofit executives and board members at organizations anywhere in New York State to sign up. Once you register, you can click here or on the Directors U logo on the right-hand side of the page to login and be taken directly to the site.
