Board of Directors
The Board of Directors is the responsible legal body of the United Way. Directors are elected for a three-year term. Meets monthly on the 3rd Wednesday.
Allocation Panel Members attend a 1-1-l/2 hour orientation session in January. They visit four or five agencies during one day (9:00 am – 5:00 pm) the end of January or first of February. During the agency visit they become familiar with the programs, objectives and see the agency in operation. They review the agency’s request and budget materials submitted and ask questions of the agency representatives. They make recommendations on funding for each agency on their panel. There are currently five Allocation Panels. The Allocations Executive Committee consists of two chairs from each Panel. The Executive Committee review and recommend action on agency requests for continued support. They review and recommend action on new agency requests for admission or current agencies’ requests for supplemental fund raising.
The Marketing Committee is responsible for year-round program of information and publicizing the annual campaign. They also actively participate in overseeing Special Event programs. Meets monthly.
