Arizona Forward is governed by an elected 30-member statewide Board of Directors led by William Allison, Partner, Withey Morris and 2016 Chair, along with Michelle Olson, President, Fingerpaint Marketing as Chair-Elect.
In addition to a statewide Board, Arizona Forward is guided by regional councils covering Central, Northern and Southern Arizona that meet quarterly or more often as needed. Each regional council can include up to 40 elected members. The Central Regional Council is currently comprised of 40 elected participants, with the Northern and Southern Regional Councils comprised of appointed individuals in those areas. Once Arizona Forward grows to more than 40 members in each region, elections will be held to populate all of the councils. The regional councils ensure that local decisions are made by local leaders.
