Dear Prospective Board Member,
Thank you for your interest in the Baypath Humane Society’s Board of Directors. Our mission for more than four decades has been to provide shelter, care, humane treatment and loving homes for stray or unwanted companion animals. We seek to serve our community by fostering relationships, promoting education and making a positive impact on pet population.
The Board of Directors is a volunteer organization chartered with overseeing the operations of the organization and advancing the mission of Baypath. We are involved with budgeting, financial management and overall governance – with the goal of steering Baypath towards a sustainable future. We are deeply involved in fundraising as only a portion of the monies needed to run the shelter is covered by adoption fees. As a team, we strive to provide professional expertise, community perspective, and organizational credibility to the shelter. We have specialized functions – either as individuals or as small teams (committees) focused on a specific area or initiative.
I hope you will consider joining the Baypath Board of Directors and helping us to make an impact. The first step in the process is to complete a short application (attached) as a way of introduction.
On behalf of the entire Board of Directors, the staff and animals at Baypath, we look forward to hearing from you.
Susan Rossnick
President, Baypath Humane Society of Hopkinton
