We Adopt Greyhounds has an ’Open Position’ on it’s Board of Directors for a Recording Secretary. The Recording Secretary takes Notes/Minutes at Board of Directors Meetings and the annual Membership Meeting, types up the Minutes, and distributes them. The new Recording Secretary will sit on the current Board of Directors until April 2014 when, at such time, a new Board is elected by the membership. Please respond to Becky@weadoptgreyhounds.org or by phone at 860-845-7196 if you’re interested or would like further information. The deadline for responses for this position is January 7, 2014.
Additionally, elections for a new Board of Directors will be held in April 2014. WAG needs members to be on the Nominating Committee. Your help would only be needed for next year’s election. We hope you’ll agree to help out with this important process in the proper running of WAG. Please respond to Rachel@weadoptgreyhounds.org or by phone at 860-845-7196 if you’re interested or would like further information.
As you’ve read in recent posts, WAG’s expenses are steadily increasing for the greyhounds that we take in. But, you can help us! Do you have a talent for Fundraising? Whether you can fundraise on a large scale for us or even a little bit, you’re a person we need. Can you plan, organize, and carry out an activity such as a walk-a-thon or golf-a-thon-for-greyhounds, host a wine and cheese party, have a tag-sale, rake leaves with a monetary portion donated to WAG, or designate Holiday gifts as ‘donations to WAG’? I’m sure you can think of many ways to help us. Interested? Contact Linda at Linda@weadoptgreyhounds.org.
