Board of Directors

The Board members contribute strategically to the direction of the United Way by reviewing organizational performance against our vision and mission. The board is representative of a cross-section of our community. Members are recruited annually, usually after having already supported the work of the organization in some significant capacity.

The composition of the board is diverse reflecting age, gender, race, background and perspective (business and community). Members serve three year terms which can be renewed. The board meets six times a year.
