About Good Practices for Good Boards

charitySTRONG’s signature course, Good Practices for Good Boards, provides essential information on nonprofit board service in New York State. Good Practices is a free, online course co-created with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit director education. The goal is to help board members and potential board members better understand their role as individual directors, how a board operates as a collective, the board-staff relationship and several best practices for maximizing nonprofit board experience.

The course is divided into five topics, each lasting 7-10 minutes, with a brief three question quiz and discussion section in between each topic. Not only will taking this course as a group help ensure that all your board members share a common framework and approach to board service, but it is intended to promote conversation among directors about your board’s experience as a team.

Once your entire board has completed the course, we would like to recognize this achievement on charitySTRONG’s Board Honor Roll. Please email us a list of the names of all your board members who have completed the course to We will include your nonprofit’s name on the Board Honor Roll page of our website.
