The NUA Board of Directors helps board and staff advance the organization’s mission, support improved collective decisions, provide governance and guide actions and behaviors. Fundraising is an important responsibility as is fiduciary oversight of programs supported by the president and the CEO. The board oversees policies which help the board and staff leaders advance the organization, make better collective decisions, and guide individual actions and behaviors. Strategic planning is an additional responsibility. The board meets four times per year in face-to-face sessions as well as by conference call. The chairmen are in touch with the president frequently throughout the year. The president is the liaison between the board and the staff.
