This morning’s campaign volunteer training session brought local volunteers and United Way staff together to learn more about sharing information and raising support during this year’s fundraising season.
General Campaign Chairman Joe DiNicolantonio (Regions) welcomed the group of community volunteer leaders, and thanked them for their willingness to serve our community as members of the fundraising team. DiNicolantonio also thanked the group for their time and financial support for United Way’s work to improve local education, financial stability and health.
United Way President Bryce Haugsdahl provided a short overview of United Way, which was followed by an explanation of United Way’s impact on community issues presented by Senior Vice President of Community Engagement and Alignment, Regina Walker.
Senior Vice President of Fundraising Faye Carter led the group in an overview of key items related to discussions with CEOs and information related to proven fundraising practices that is provided by the United Way staff.
The meeting featured a break-out session with volunteers and staff to discuss volunteer job descriptions, campaign timetables, organization charts, and other items used in the annual fundraising campaign.
Carter also reminded the group about the region-wide employee keyworker training session in August, and the official kickoff to the campaign during Day of Caring on September 14.
