Board of Directors Vacancy Announcement
Prison Pet Partnership’s board of directors has several board member positions currently open. The board is an all-volunteer body comprised of up to fifteen members. The board evaluates, advises and supports the Executive Director, establishes PPP’s annual budget, adopts the organization’s formal policies and procedures and oversees and directs the organization’s affairs in line with our mission statement:
“To enriches the lives of incarcerated individuals, animals, and the community through the human-animal bond.”
The board meets at a minimum of six times per year at 6 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday of the month (currently on Zoom).
Board members are expected to make a financial contribution to the organization and support ongoing fundraising activities.
Board members are expected to attend most board meetings (at least 75%) and serve on at least one board committee (for example, the Finance Committee or the Development Committee). See Board Member Job Description.
Board member’s terms of office are normally for three years (starting with the first January after you join the board). So, most people’s first term is actually a bit over three years. The Bylaws have term limits after two three-year terms but there is a process for serving even longer.
If you are interested in serving on the board, please complete a Board Member Interest Form. After it has been received, a member of the Nominating Committee will schedule a meeting with you where you can ask questions about PPP and the members of the Nominating Committee can get to know the candidate.
After vetting the candidate, the Nominating Committee then recommends action by the full board.
