On behalf of the Governance Section of the Association for Research on Nonprofit Organizations and Voluntary Action (ARNOVA), we are pleased to present this special section of the Journal of Nonprofit Education and Leadership, which consists of four advocacy case studies. The cases were developed as part of the Governance Symposium, Board Advocacy: Promoting Organizational Values, Beliefs, and Goals, convened during the 2017 ARNOVA conference. The symposium was cosponsored by the Governance Section of ARNOVA and the Alliance for Nonprofit Management, the national organization of capacity builders. These case studies provide wonderful learning tools focused on board advocacy for use in the classroom and in training workshops and are designed for instructors, consultants, students, board members, and executive directors. The set of cases is followed by a study guide that is designed to be used in conjunction with all the cases. The guide includes instructor/trainer and student/training-participant sections with activities, discussion questions, and a list of print and electronic resources.
