– William Shakespeare
The SPAT Board of Directors dedicates itself to ensuring that the organization’s mission is carried out to its fullest potential. The all-volunteer board is made up of nine elected members with three elected officers. Together as a group, the board represents individuals who are committed to a thriving shellfishing industry and are invested in the positive public perception of the Town of Wellfleet. Board members also draw from a diversity of professional experiences and disciplines that represent a unique mix of understanding, knowledge and skills that help direct the organization in the most beneficial way. Members come from the fields of education, the shellfishing industry, area businesses, non-profit sectors and professional associations. The balance of the board members’ individual strengths and professional experiences, combined with their vested interest in the Town of Wellfleet and SPAT’s mission, are part of the reason why SPAT as an organization has been successful, and why the Wellfleet OysterFest has become such a successful event.
