2020-2021 Phoenix Officers and Board of Directors


An elected Chapter Board of Directors oversees all phases of ARCS Foundation Phoenix. At monthly board meetings, the work and progress of the committees are discussed. Officers of the Phoenix Board include President, Past President, and in some years, President-Elect, VP Field Trips, VP Fund Development, VP Membership, VP Public Relations, VP University Relations, Recording Secretary, Corresponding Secretary, Treasurer, and Assistant Treasurer. Committees include Alumni Scholar Relations, Awards Dinner, Donor Relations, Endowment Fund, Fall Speakers Series, Historian, Hospitality, Newsletter, Parliamentarian, Printing, and Web Master. In addition, there are several Directors at Large who serve on the Phoenix Board.

The fiscal year is July 1 – June 30, with the annual officer installation meeting each May. The year’s largest event is the Scholar Awards Dinner in April, when the scholars for the upcoming year present posters of their work and introduce themselves on stage to the attendees.
