Update to

We are excited to share that on October 28, the National Board’s web site - - will be refreshed. All visitors to the site will experience a new look and feel along with a range of changes that we believe will enhance the user experience.  You can get a sneak peak here.

  • Navigation based on audience needs

  • Enhanced search

  • Greater flexibility to make changes over time

  • Updates based on your feedback

This exciting evolution comes with change that may require some action from you and all visitors to our website. Because of some of the back-end requirements, most URLs on the site are changing. We expect the search to function effectively and the site will be intuitive - so finding content should be easy. But, bookmarks and resources documents that have old URLs will require updating. 

We have created a quick guide with the most frequently used URLs to support you to update your materials.

Thanks for your understanding and support as we work to make this important information more accessible than ever
