Below are the areas and general expectations of Board Members of HSNWIA.
Must actively participate in discussions including strategic planning, policy making, financial integrity, loyalty, and confidentiality.
Must express their views on philanthropy and/or Animal Welfare as opportunities present themselves and understand HSNWIA’s need for charitable gifts and encourage Shelter support through a positive, informed attitude.
Access to private, corporate, or grant-making affluence and willingness to tactfully utilize that access. Also, the ability to recognize these attributes in other potential Board members.
Should express their commitment to HSNWIA through whatever type of gift they feel is right for them (if they own a business, can be a gift through their business. Otherwise it must be given personally, not through their place of business).
Can be performed through a fundraising committee. There will be times when a potential donor would best respond to the individual Board Member’s request, so their participation is vital.
Must actively serve on committees as necessary.
