Mission: to unite, strengthen and advance Arizona's nonprofit sector.

Third Quarter: Team Building

Your board is your team. In additional to looking out for the future of the organization, the board chair must keep an eye on the health of the board itself. Boards typically are self-perpetuating, meaning that the current board members are responsible for recruiting new members and eventually promoting succession beyond their own service. Below are resources to help you recruit and orient new members and create an effective board team to advance the nonprofit’s mission and goals:
