Volunteers give oversight and direction to every aspect of the United Way's operation. Fellow citizens do the planning, establish goals, certify need, man the campaign, solicit the gifts, and allocate the funds. All members of the Board of Directors are independent voting members who do not receive any compensation for their service.
