Board Members

The VBAS Board is responsible for both the day-to-day operations of our organization as well as the strategic planning of our organization. Board members work with fellow volunteers, the shelter staff and the public to evolve VBAS initiatives, programs and activities so that we can accomplish our mission and attain our vision.
