OUR

BOARD  LEADERSHIP

The leadership structure of our society is divided up between three boards: General, Founding, and Advisory.  The General Board is the governing board.  One thing we pride ourselves with is providing General Board seats for Stay At Home Parents (SAHP).  We see them as valuable organizers and leaders.  They are also a zoo and aquarium's chief patrons.  The founding board is made up of representatives of the founding members and ensures that the organization does not lose sight of the society's core purpose: "To connect people with animals."  The Advisory Board provides unique skill sets, experiences, and perspectives to help in the success of the society.

Important links:
