Board Position Openings

Each year RCHS warmly invites and sincerely welcomes nominations and applications for all volunteer positions, this includes all positions on the Board of Directors. 

The Process

Please carefully read the position descriptions by clicking on the links below. If you are concerned that you would not be able to fulfill all the responsibilities set out in a position description, consider that you may be able to partner with another volunteer to get the job done.  If you are concerned that you do not have all the knowledge or qualifications expected for a position, we may be able to help you grow into the fulfillment of those expectations by close partnership with a more experienced member or volunteer. 

All board and coordinator positions require membership in RCHS, and completion of the online application form below.  If you would like to become a member of RCHS you can do so here.

Members interested in Board positions (the Executive Committee and the Chair positions of the remaining five committees) may nominate themselves by sending an email to the RCHS Secretary:  You may also nominate another member to a Board position in the same way.

Other positions such as Adoption Ambassadors Coordinator, and Petco Care and Comfort Coordinator, and Adoption Follow-up Coordinator are appointed by the Board upon review of the completed application form below.  You need not wait until May to begin serving as co-coordinator in these areas. 

Please do not be shy to put yourself forward.  We hope always to have co-chairs, co-coordinators, and many volunteers in order to maximize the impact RCHS has on what is too often a matter of life or death for animals in our community.

  • Nominations should be received by March 14.  
  • Later nominations will be accepted, but must be received no later than April 28th, and must be signed by at least 10 voting members. 
  • Board elections will be held at the RCHS Annual Meeting on May 13, 2013.
