Hi Keith,

Here are the steps to close a board:

  1. Open the board you would like to archive.
  2. Tap the three dots at the top right of the screen.
  3. Select "Board settings."
  4. Select "Close board."

If you want to permanently delete it, here is a blog post that describes next steps with visuals:

Please let me know if this helps.

Have a great day!

This answer should include the fact that the deleter/archiver must be an admin of the board.
