The Society believes that the effectiveness of any organization is largely dependent upon its people. In meeting the organization’s staffing needs, the Society seeks to fill all positions with qualified candidates. In accordance with state and federal law, all potential candidates for positions will receive equal consideration without regard to race, disability, religion, color, national origin, gender, age, ancestry, citizenship, veteran’s status, sexual orientation or other non-job related factors in hiring, promoting, demoting, training, benefits, layoffs, terminations, recommendations, rates of pay or other forms of compensation.
The board of governors may authorize the executive director or any other agent in addition to officers so authorized to sign checks, drafts or other orders for the payment of money issued in the name of the Society. All funds of the Society shall be deposited from time to time to the credit of the Society in such banks, trust companies or other depositories as the board of governors may select.
