Board of Directors

The HSNB Board of Directors is composed of members of the community who oversee the management and operation of the shelter. Directors serve without compensation in a volunteer capacity and are elected through invitation by currently serving members.

The Board meets the third Tuesday of every month. The public is welcome to attend, and we offer an opportunity at the beginning of each meeting for public comments. For the specific location of our next meeting, please visit our Calendar.
