NOTICE TO MEMBERS
24 January 2014
The purpose of this correspondence is to inform you of the Columbia Humane Society, Inc (herein referred to as CHS) in cooperation with the Oregon Department of Justice and our Attorney, expects to amend the bylaws of the organization changing the entity from a membership based organization to one of a board-managed organization.
The decision was not made lightly and CHS values the opinions and concerns of its supporters; however, nonprofit entities in this competitive market are scrambling for fewer and fewer resources. There is no reason to doubt the continued success of CHS regardless of the type of organization.
If you would like to share your opinion in this matter, we would like to hear from you at our next Board meeting which will be held at the Columbia County Road Department building, 1054 Oregon Street, St Helens on Wednesday February 12th at 6:30pm.
You may also chose to reply in writing to CHS your decision (the only other suitable option) in the space below, and mailing this letter to Columbia Humane Society, PO Box 845, Saint Helens OR 97051.
We appreciate and thank everyone who has supported this wonderful organization throughout the past twenty years, and look forward to another twenty years of placing pets in their forever homes.
