Directors U is an educational website. The main feature is an online library of publications and video resources for nonprofit chief executives and current and prospective board of directors members developed by nonprofit experts. 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 items as well as 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 government agencies and nonprofit resource organizations that provide guidance to nonprofit organizations that is beyond the scope of charitySTRONG's programming.
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.
