board member education

Let’s face it, these days the board landscape is shifting and evolving at lightning speed. It can be difficult to stay up-to-date on all the latest trends in corporate governance.

At Directorpoint, we do our best to help keep you knowledgeable with our weekly newsletter, but where should you go looking for information when questions arise?

We’ve compiled this helpful guide to tell you about some of the most useful board member education and resource websites.

  1. The National Association for Corporate Directors (NACD)

NACD has been providing directors with news and educational information for more than 40 years. Although it takes a paid membership to access all of their materials, they also share articles and information frequently via social media. Their monthly magazine, Directorship, is always chock-full of valuable guidance and news-related activity in the board sphere.

  1. BoardSource

When it comes to nonprofit boardroom intelligence, few websites can compete with the highly illuminating The site is true to its mission, which is “to inspire and support excellence in nonprofit governance and board and staff leadership.” With a section of content dedicated to research and critical issues, you’ll be sure to find the latest statistics on nonprofit board management.

  1. The Harvard Law School Forum on Corporate Governance and Financial Regulation

For an extremely scholarly resource on corporate governance, be sure to check out The Harvard Law School Forum, which provides “updates on working papers, seminars, speakers, and other activities sponsored by the Program. The Forum also features communications about corporate governance and financial regulation by individuals associated with the Program—faculty, fellows, and members of the Program’s advisory board—as well as by guest contributors and others.” What the website lacks in design, it absolutely makes up for in top-notch content. 

  1. Harvard Business Review (HBR)

The Harvard Business Review is an extensive site for all things business-related. With articles broken down by topic, though, they’ve made it easy for board members to find articles about corporate governance, C-suite trends, innovation, and so much more. HBR pulls in experts from all over the world to write about the most cutting edge topics.

These four sites are just a handful of beneficial board resources you can find on the web. We also encourage you to follow the hashtag #corpgov on social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook. Influencers use this hashtag to help distribute the latest news in corporate governance.
