Representing a broad cross-section of our community, our Board reflects a variety of backgrounds, ages, professions, and perspectives. Members serve a three-year renewable term, with new positions filled annually by our Governance, Nominations and Human Resources Committee. The Board meets six times a year to discuss United Way’s accomplishments and goals, and to evaluate our performance against our stated vision: a community united by compassion, rich in opportunity, and free of poverty.
