FAQ

What are the responsibilities of a Board Director and what is the time commitment?

Board Members set the strategic vision for the Association, attend meetings (virtually), serve on committees, and participate in the specific activities of their portfolio. In general, Board Members should be willing to commit to a minimum of 5-10 hours of time per month.

Do I need to have experience in a related field to take on that Board position?

While it is certainly beneficial to have a background that relates to the Board position for which you are applying, it is not a requirement.

Can I run for a position where the incumbent (current Director) is planning on running?

Certainly. All positions that are up this fiscal are open for nominations.

Who can be an ARA Director?

As per our Bylaws, "Any Member who is eighteen (18) years of age or older and who has the power under law to contract, is not an employee of the Association and is a member of the Association in good standing for at least one (1) year may be nominated for election as a Director."
