Are you interested in serving on the Board of Directors? The Arizona Evaluation Network invites dynamic volunteers to contribute their skills to the governance and growth of our network. If you're considering a role where you can help shape the future of evaluation in Arizona, take a closer look at our Board of Directors positions.

Each role on the board is crafted to advance the Arizona Evaluation Network's mission. Below, you will find a list of board positions with descriptions of the responsibilities and the expected time commitment for each. Alongside fulfilling the specific duties of their role, all board members are expected to participate in monthly one-hour board meetings to collaboratively navigate our course.


Before diving into the details, here are some important points to consider:

  • Membership: While you don't need to be a member to be nominated for a board position, you will need to maintain active AZENet membership throughout your tenure.

  • Officer Positions: Officers are required to be appointed by the Arizona Evaluation Network membership and are responsible for the oversight of the organization's management.

  • Director Positions: Directors may be appointed by the current Board of Directors, though it is preferred they be appointed by the Arizona Evaluation Network membership. Directors are responsible for managing specific portfolios of work that advance the organization's mission. These positions usually share responsibilities with a co-chair elected on alternating cycles so that incoming chairs are trained and supported over the first year by the outgoing chair.

Dive in to see where your talents could best serve the Arizona Evaluation Network, and how you can contribute to our collective success—all while enriching your own professional journey.
