Premier Alliances, Inc., a leading Cochise County nonprofit, is seeking passionate and qualified applicants for our voluntary Board of Directors to help guide the agency in its mission of improving the lives of people with disabilities.
For more than 50 years, Premier Alliances, Inc., has been at the forefront in the effort to support the disabled community in Southeast Arizona by providing gainful employment and life skills training to an historically underserved population. Through the federal AbilityOne program and our partnership with SourceAmerica, Premier Alliances, Inc. employs dozens of individuals through long-term contracts for groundskeeping work on Fort Huachuca and custodial services at the Brian A. Terry Border Patrol Station in Bisbee.
The ideal board member applicant will exhibit an enthusiasm for an inclusive community and a commitment to those served by Premier Alliances, Inc. Experience working with nonprofits and the disabled is preferred, but not required, as is a familiarity with the Sierra Vista and Cochise County community. Weighted consideration will be given to applicants with a track record of board leadership, and/or accomplishments in business, philanthropy and with nonprofit organizations.
The Premier Alliances, Inc. Board of Directors is a policy board, where members provide vital counsel in shaping policy and give guidance to the Chief Executive Officer via regular bimonthly meetings. While daily operations and decisions are determined by the CEO, board members provide support and insight for long-term strategic planning for the organization. The board will also approve Premier Alliances’ annual budget, as well as audit reports.
Board members will be expected to maintain a high level of personal integrity as they will be expected to represent Premier Alliances, Inc. to stakeholders and act as ambassadors for the organization.
