This past Thursday the Moose Jaw Humane Society held their annual general meeting at the Moose Jaw Exhibition Company Convention Center.
Members of the MJHS and animal-lovers were invited to take part in the AGM to discuss the previous year, and about 25 people made the meeting. According to Tanya Morland, President of the MJHS Board of Directors, it was a straightforward meeting.
"It's your typical AGM, where we look at the financial statement from the audit and we kind of present that to all members, open the floor for some questions and then the election of members."
Two new members were added to the MJHS Board of Directors, filling the spots that were left by the exit of two previous members.
Morland said the MJHS is excited for the two new members, not only when it comes to a fresh set of eyes, but their previous experience they'll be able to bring to the board.
One of the members has extensive financial experiences, and will obviously be able to help in that aspect. The other member had previous experience in public relations, and they'll be able to help with the human resource aspects of the shelter, and will help to find a new Executive Director for the MJHS.
"With regards to the Executive Director, that is going to be the focus, the recruiting of that position," Morland said. "That's now our focus. So word will be out soon, hopefully, we'll get that posted, we're working on getting together a contract before we put out a posting so the recruitment will be happening soon."
Morland added that they hope the new Executive Director will spearhead the Humane Society's search for a new facility.
