Join a Committee

The Sacramento Area Animal Coalition (SAAC) Board of Directors is a working board--meaning board members actively do the organization's work. SAAC relies on volunteer committee members to assist with the ongoing operation of our programs. The committees described below are tasked with executing specific aspects of that work.

How they work: Committees will meet monthly, or more as deemed necessary by the committee members. Business can also be conducted via email or conference calls. Up to five non-Board member volunteers may sit on each committee, other than the Executive Committee, which consists of Board Officers. Our committee roles do not involve hands-on animal care. 

Attendance policy: Committee members must attend 75% of all committee meetings within a twelve month period to remain on the committee.

To be informed when volunteer committee positions become available, please sign up to receive our email updates.
