We are always seeking applicants for At-Large board members for our Board of Directors.  Together we will achieve our vision!

Though located in Meriden, Connecticut, board members can serve remotely.  MHS is seeking applicants who support our mission to ensure decisions are made in the best interests of the animals and we act in a supportive role to those overseeing their care.  Legal, Marketing/Communications, Strategic Planning, Public Relations, and Veterinary best practices are especially relevant skills being sought for board membership, though not a requirement.  At-Large board members will be supporting the board of directors in the board’s 3 primary duties:

1. Duty of Care: Care of MHS by ensuring prudent use of all assets, including facility, people, and good will.
2. Duty of Loyalty: Ensure that MHS's activities and
transactions are advancing its mission; Recognize and disclose conflicts of interest; Make decisions that are
in MHS's best interest and the animals we serve.
3. Duty of Obedience: Ensure that MHSobeys applicable laws and regulations; follows its own bylaws; and that the MHS adheres to its stated corporate purposes/mission. Board members will also play very significant roles providing guidance to nonprofits by contributing to the organization’s culture, strategic focus, effectiveness, and financial sustainability, as well as serving as ambassadors and advocates for animal welfare.  

At-Large board members report into the Executive Board and will serve a 2-year term.  Time commitment will vary depending upon the amount of participation
