Board Member - Events Taskforce Chair

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Idealist.org

Recruiting Organization: Small Angels Rescue, Inc.

Do you have a passion for animal welfare? Are you seeking to make a difference by contributing your professional skills and knowledge to an organization that saves the lives of the helpless?

Since its inception in October 2003, Small Angels Rescue, Inc. has saved over 4,000 guinea pigs, hamsters, rats, mice, and gerbils from euthanasia, abuse, and abandonment. We are a young, growing, all-volunteer, registered 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that serves an area of desperate need in the community. We do not have a physical location but instead have a network of volunteers in the Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia tri-state area.

We are currently seeking an At-Large Board Member who would also take on the role of Events Taskforce Chair. Here is what the role entails:

At-Large Board Members participate in organizational governance and decision making. Attendance at monthly board meetings is mandatory. Board meetings alternate between in-person in Frederick, MD and via teleconference. In-person meetings are on Sunday afternoons at 4:00 p.m. and teleconference meetings are Monday nights at 6:30 p.m. Either of these may be held via Zoom.

The Events Taskforce Chair oversees the work of the Rescue's volunteers that are involved in event planning and attendance, including the team that is formed each year to organize the Annual Picnic. The volunteer in this role provides a communication link between them and the Board, as well as developing the event calendar and ideas for new outreach and fundraising events. Attendance at the Annual Picnic, which is usually on a Sunday in September, is required. Prior professional experience with event planning is preferred, but not necessary. The volunteer in this role must have a vehicle and a valid driver's license and be able to drive to events in the Maryland/DC/Virginia area.

The time commitment for this role will vary depending on the organization's present activity level with events, but we foresee it requiring 2-3 hours per week (maybe more on Board Meeting weeks and in the lead-up to the Annual Picnic).
