Business On Board
Service on a nonprofit Board of Directors can be one of the most rewarding ways to contribute your skills and experience to make a positive impact on the community. Nonprofits working hard to improve our state face enormous challenges, so they seek energetic, talented and qualified leaders to achieve their missions. However, not always do prospective board members have the tools and information to be the most successful. That's where Business on Board comes in.
Business on Board is designed to teach professionals what they need to know before joining a nonprofit board. Or, to give a much-needed refresher to current board members and other organization leaders. Expert speakers provide attendees with critical knowledge about nonprofit board service, including:
- An overview of nonprofits and their impact
- Basics of board roles & responsibilities (The 4 W's of Board Service)
- The Fiduciary role of board members
- The Legal Role of board members, and
- The Fundraising Role of board members
The program is offered in multiple formats to a variety of audiences throughout the year:

They are offered in convenient half-day formats or more in-depth full day sessions in Central, Northern and Southern AZ locations.
