Public stakeholder meeting for hiring new shelter director

by austinpetsalive • Posted in: Awareness/ PR

Just received this from the City of Austin. A meeting is scheduled this Thursday with the recruiter who will be helping Austin with the hiring of the new shelter director.  This is an important step in the hiring process.  The recruiter, who will likely not be very familiar with the no kill movement and the directors who have successfully created no kill communities, will hear from our community about the kind of shelter director we want so she can write a job description, or profile.

On behalf of Assistant City Manager, Bert Lumbreras, we invite you to a special public Stakeholder meeting hosted by the City of Austin Human Resources Department, to meet with Heidi Voorhees, the Voorhees Associate, LLC, Consultant contracted by the City of Austin. We are in the process of recruiting for the Chief Animal Services Officer position and Ms. Voorhees will lead this recruitment.

As part of the recruitment process, we will develop a recruitment profile to be used in a national search to attract candidates to apply for the position. Your input is important to us.

When: Thursday, July 15, 2010
3:30 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Where: Town Lake Animal Shelter
Austin/Travis County HHSD
1156 W. Cesar Chavez
Austin, TX 78703

If you will be unable to attend this Stakeholder Meeting, you may contact Heidi Voorhees to give her your input at 847-580-4246, or email her at: email hidden; JavaScript is required no later than July 19, 2010.
