Job Information

PL2V LogoGiving back a little of your time to further the goals and mission of the organization is self sacrificing. Your expertise and knowledge will travel far in supporting our veterans through PetsLoyal2Vets programs.

Minnesota Advisers will have important input into our training programs, mental health services, finance, campaigns, public relations, veterinary medicine, dog diets and Psychiatric service dog training, services and state wide expansion opportunities of a non-profit organization that will shape the needs and goals for Minnesota veterans for years to come as it relates to their specific backgrounds. It’s not about personal glory and recognition. PetsLoyal2Vets is all about helping others. Reaching out and touching another person’s life while making a difference and experiencing personal growth from the inside out.  To be considered as an adviser, you must be able to fit into one of the positions we are looking to fill that are listed below.  Simply wanting to be an adviser for Pets Loyal 2 Vets is not what we are looking for.  If you officially represent one of the organizations below, and want to be an adviser for us, you must be currently serving on their board or listed as a committee chair to be considered.  

All advisory board positions are voluntary but must attend at least 4 of the 12 meetings during their one year term. All Advisers must maintain a positive professional demeanor in good standing. Volunteer advisory role positions do not carry voting rights as Executive Board members or Directors do. Advisers cannot create or write policy, interfere with policy or the company By Laws. Advisers can sit in on general meetings and provide general input as it relates to their skills and background but all advisers serve only in a limited capacity. If selected as an Adviser for Pets Loyal 2 Vets, you will be attending board meetings. For the sake of clarification, Advisers answer to the Executive Director. Advisers provide relevant information, suggestions and or recommendations to the Executive Director two weeks prior to a board meeting, providing sufficient time to review and add suggestions to the next monthly board meeting agenda.
