"If you take care of birds, you take care of most of the environmental problems in the world." - Thomas Lovejoy


Founded in 1916, Seattle Audubon is an independently incorporated chapter of the National Audubon Society and one of the oldest environmental organizations in the Pacific Northwest. If you are someone with nonprofit experience or a background in finance, we are looking for you to join our board in support of Seattle Audubon’s mission to advocate and organize for cities where people and birds thrive. Our Board of Directors plays a vital role in ensuring Seattle Audubon has the strategic direction and necessary resources to create a sustainable community.

We are currently recruiting for all board positions, and specifically for a Treasurer. Individuals with prior experience as an accountant or CPA are highly desirable, but this experience is not required for the Treasurer role on our board.

You would be a great fit if:

  • You can work with a financial team to understand the organization’s financial results and communicate to the board.
  • You feel comfortable reviewing spreadsheets and financial reports.
  • You would enjoy collaborating with Seattle Audubon’s finance team, which includes volunteer CPAs serving on the Finance Committee, a contract accountant who is a CPA, the Operations Manager staff member, and the organization’s auditors.
  • You want to have a positive impact locally on conservation priorities that benefit birds and people through your board leadership and service.
  • You desire to help shape the future of a legacy conservation organization that is committed to actively working toward an anti-racist future.

To apply:
1. Please complete an online volunteer application (if you do not already have an application on file with Seattle Audubon) and endorse your interest in serving on the Board of Directors: https://seattleaudubon-volunteers.secure.force.com/VolunteerRegistration/
2. Also send an email to governance@seattleaudubon.org including a brief statement of interest and attaching a resume or CV. Alternatively, these documents may be submitted in person or via postal mail to Seattle Audubon, 8050 35th Ave NE, Seattle, WA 98115.

Mission Statement

Seattle Audubon leads a local community in appreciating, understanding, and protecting birds and their natural habitats. We envision a healthy environment in balance with nature, where people enjoy, respect, and care for the natural resources that sustain the community of life.

Description

Founded in 1916, Seattle Audubon is Washington's oldest natural history organization, and one of the state's most active. Much of our success is due to the strong environmental spirit of Seattle-area residents and to the hundreds of volunteers who annually contribute thousands of hours toward the mission and the activities of Seattle Audubon.
Our primary programs are Education, Conservation, Science, Community Engagement, and The Nature Shop.
