Board Responsibilities

A board is a group of people who are charged to govern the CSTA-Arizona chapter. The board is responsible for setting strategic direction, establishing board policies and objectives, and offering dynamic programs for its members. Chapter leaders should be CSTA+ members in good standing. 


The board is the main decision-making body of the chapter. Board members must be well informed, prudent, and responsive to the needs of the chapter.

The role of the Chapter Board

The board must ensure the continuity of the chapter by:

  • Planning for the future;

  • Keeping the chapter fiscally sound; and

  • Establishing and reviewing programs, benefits and services that support CSTA and the chapter’s mission.

  • Charged to govern the non-profit duties associated with the CSTA-Arizona chapter
