The Shaw Dog Park Association seeks enthusiastic and dedicated members of the community to join its executive committee and board of directors.

We are currently inviting immediate applications for president, vice president, treasurer, and secretary, as well as for positions on the board of directors. In addition to specific duties for each position, everyone on the SDPA contributes equally during park maintenance and community outreach activities. Time commitment is only a few hours every month. Please email with your name, contact information, and a brief statement of interest. We anticipate filling vacancies at our Annual Meeting on Wednesday, February 8, 2017 in order to begin planning for projects for the forth-coming year. Even if you’re not interested in an official role, we still need your help!

Thank you!- SDPA
