Board Membership
The Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits is regularly seeking members for our Board of Directors. In filling these positions, we are especially interested in identifying candidates whose selection will help our Board in reflecting the broad geographic and ethnic diversity of the communities throughout the state of Arizona. We are also seeking individuals that are willing and able to help the Alliance raise the funds it needs to achieve its organizational and operational goals. Finally, we are looking for people who have a strong commitment to the community building and the nonprofit sector and who may possess professional skills and expertise that are instrumental to the future of the Alliance, specifically, strategic planning, public policy, capacity building, resource development, membership development and community outreach/marketing.
