Committee members wanted
Safest Drug is governed by a Board of Directors with members based in multiple different states. To help run the organization, we have a number of Board-managed committees with needs for new members.
The following committees are currently recruiting volunteers:
- Fundraising Committee - helps to plan and execute our fundraising strategy and priorities for each fiscal year. No prior fundraising/development experience required.
- Public Relations and Communications Committee - helps to develop our branding, communication messaging strategy, and media relationships. Prefer individuals with an interest or skill in public relations, graphic design, marketing, communications.
- Governance Committee - works to ensure the Board is well trained and fully staffed, as well as assists with corporate policy development.
- Finance Committee - ensures annual budget is developed/executed and sound financial practices are occurring organization-wide. Prefer individuals with interest or skill in accounting or finance. Must be comfortable with numbers!
All committees meet once a month for one hour and committee are held remotely. There may be some tasks outside of a committee meeting but that will vary and is based on need. Board membership is not required to serve on a committee. All committee members should have access to a phone and reliable internet. Members should also be based in the U.S.
Serious inquiries only.
