charitySTRONG offers two, free, online programs: Directors U, our nonprofit governance education and training program and onBOARD, our recruitment program for organizations seeking new members of their boards of directors and individuals who want to join nonprofit boards.
Directors U is an online library for current and prospective board members and chief executives developed by nonprofit experts. There are publications and videos on New York State laws and regulations for charities; board roles and responsibilities; and, board composition, development, operations and structure. Some items can be downloaded directly from the website. We have included many free items along with links to a select number of books, subscriptions and training opportunities that are available for a fee from other providers.
onBOARD is an online recruitment site. It connects individuals who want to join boards of directors of New York State nonprofits with organizations seeking to expand or fill open positions on their board. onBOARD is intended for posting board of directors openings, but it may also be used to list associate board and advisory council positions.
To access these programs, please first read the registration instructions and then register for a free account. Upon registration, all users will be able to sign on to Directors U. All representatives of charitable organizations, and candidates who complete the core course, Good Practices for Good Boards on Directors U, may create onBOARD accounts.
In addition to our two online programs, charitySTRONG staff members are available for presentations and training workshops for groups of candidates and organizations. To learn more, please contact us at email@example.com.
