Join EHS’ Board of Directors
The Board of Directors for the Edmonton Humane Society (EHS) is a diverse group of members who collaboratively contribute to the Society’s commitment to enrich the lives of people and companion animals through animal sheltering, programs and services, and community engagement. You can meet our current Board members here.
The Board of Directors at EHS is a governance board, comprised of up to a maximum of 15 members. The Board defines the organization’s vision and mission, provides strategic direction, sets priorities and exercises its fiduciary responsibility. The Board delegates responsibility for daily operations and our employees to our CEO.
Directors serve for a two-year term, with the opportunity for re-election for a maximum of three additional terms (8 years in total). The time commitment is approximately 10-15 hours a month, and Directors are expected to serve on at least one Board Committee. Directors should be Edmonton and area residents and must become a voting member of the Society.
Our board recruitment cycle runs from fall until January annually. If this unique opportunity is a fit and is of interest, please check back here for new opportunities.
