Serving as United Way Board Member
Members of the Board of Directors perform one of the most important and most involved volunteer functions for United Way. Members use their extensive knowledge and experience to guide the organization, helping it to improve the lives of people in the community. Board Membership is a great honor and a large responsibility – it demands both a commitment of time and a great deal of care, concern and dedication for the community.
United Way works through a structure consisting of a Board of Directors, Executive Committee, Committees, Subcommittees, Task Forces and a Development Team. This structure allows for the division of labor, expedites the work of the Board by delegating responsibility and removing routine tasks from monthly Board consideration, utilizes the specific talents and knowledge of individuals outside the Board and increases the opportunity for participation in the overall processes of the organization.
